US PE middle Market Report

The US middle market ended a tempestuous year by
recording $480.9 billion in deal value—by a slim margin
the highest annual number on record. After the near
halt of deal activity in the wake of COVID-19 in Q2 2020,
convergent trends drove the middle-market recovery
in Q3 and a dealmaking frenzy in Q4. In 2020, deals
priced under $500 million accounted for the greatest
share of middle-market deals since the global financial
crisis (GFC), as some PE firms acted opportunistically
to acquire assets at a discount, while others snapped
up small companies with growth potential buoyed by
the pandemic. At the upper end of the market, a flight
to quality drove elevated valuations in the technology,
healthcare, and financial services sectors.

In 2020, US middle-market exits fell for the second
year in a row as many GPs delayed Q2 exits amid
market turmoil. However, by the end of the year, GPs
were making up for lost time in earnest, driving Q4 exit
activity above pre-pandemic levels—a trend that will
likely continue into 2021. Although sponsor-to-sponsor
exits declined YoY, they remained the most common exit
type for middle-market portfolio companies. Looking
ahead, special purpose acquisition company (SPAC)
mergers may facilitate more public exits for middlemarket companies

Although the amount of capital raised dipped by
approximately one third YoY, 2020’s US middle-market
fundraising proved resilient all things considered. GPs
raised 127 middle-market funds for a combined $101.1
billion—a far cry from 2019’s record-breaking heights
but roughly on par with fundraising levels in 2016-2018.
As a result of 2020’s disruptions, LPs flocked to middlemarket funds raised by the largest PE firms, especially
funds focused on technology and healthcare.

REPOST: Why PE firms targeting tech buyouts could face competition from SPACs

Why PE firms targeting tech buyouts could face competition from SPACs By Leah Hodgson March 10, 2021

Private equity has become a well-established path to liquidity for VC-backed startups, but a rebound in IPO activity and the rise of SPACs could mean more competition for deals.

PE buyouts have gone from representing 9.7% of global VC exits in 2010 to 16.4% in 2020, according to PitchBook data, making them the fastest-growing exit type compared with strategic acquisitions and IPOs. These deals—many of which are tech-focused—have continued into this year. Notable examples include Platinum Equity-backed Cision‘s $450 million purchase of Brandwatch from investors including Highland Europe and Nauta Capital, and Vista Equity Partners‘ reported $1.1 billion deal for Gainsight, backed by Battery Ventures and Lightspeed.

DATA: Analysis of Public PE Firm Earnings: Q3 2020

JD Morris is always looking for accredited investors to funds to co-invest with us in funds, companies, and moonshot deals. We are happy to meet with people and share our data and resarch such as from Pitchbook’s Analysis of Public PE Firm Earnings: Q3 2020

Overview of Analysis of Public PE Firm Earnings: Q3 2020is provided by Pitchbook

• The five largest publicly traded PE firms posted healthy performance
numbers for their PE strategies. Blackstone and KKR posted doubledigit gains in the quarter. Most of these managers’ funds have positive
performance on the year now, and this healthy recovery is likely a sign to
come for other managers that report later.
• Concentrated investments among a few key themes including technology
and life sciences drove performance figures for Blackstone and KKR. These
managers credited tech investments as the primary drivers of returns in the
quarter. All five firms discussed how they were approaching investments in
high-growth areas of the economy, although some have been more bullish
on these concentrated bets than others. Going forward, it seems as if these
managers will continue to allocate as much or more capital to high-growth
sectors.
• Permanent capital was a principal talking point again this quarter. While
KKR, Carlyle, and Ares seem focused on trying to replicate a similar strategy
that has proven effective at Apollo with insurance assets, Blackstone is
deviating. The largest private capital manager is rolling over a $14.6 billion
real estate holding into a new perpetual life vehicle that could prove to be a
method of growing permanent capital that others may follow.

Again, we are happy to meet with accredited investors and fund to explore deal flow sharing and co-investing.
