The last quarter of 2012 saw a 20 percent annual increase in the value of middle-market M&A transactions after a long, flat period since the start of the credit crunch and recession. The last bull market cycle in M&A peaked in 2007. With middle-market private equity firms becoming more active acquirers, are we now positioned for a recovery in restructurings and turnarounds? The assembled experts will discuss what sectors, traditional for private equity and otherwise, are likely to benefit from the next wave. How will corporate, cross-border and financial buyers divide the market? What's the trend in lending, and will CLOs and business development companies maintain their prominent roles? Will tax code uncertainties and worries about public deficits curb activity?
