Happy Friday and welcome to another edition of Axial Radar!

Earlier this week, Axial’s research and data team published its Q1 2022 Pursuits Report. I highly recommend reading the whole thing, but for those short on time, here’s the skinny. Q1 LMM deal activity maintained a high-velocity pace despite significant macro headwinds.

One particularly interesting nugget from the report – the number of transactions privately marketed via Axial with pursuit rates above the network average of 15% increased in Q1. This week on Radar, we take a look at the cyclicality of network pursuit rates, and discuss why certain assets generate more interest from investors at some points of the year over others. Scroll down to this week’s featured Industry Trends article (bottom of the newsletter) to read more.

Our featured buy-side members this week include a search fund led by a West Point grad and combat infantryman, an Atlanta-based private investment firm, and a holding company focused on long term ownership of essential service businesses. On the sell-side we’ll introduce you to an experienced M&A advisory firm and a storied New York investment bank.
