Lower Middle Market Weekly Outlook

Good morning, Forum readers. Yesterday, Jonathan Yates published an article claiming that private equity offers the best of capitalism. In short, he believes that “private equity groups increase shareholder value, add liquidity, offer greater resources and allow for more to invest in a wider range of assets.” It remains to be seen whether the SEC agrees with his analysis.

In other news, PE firms seem to be developing a taste for auto body shops. The appeal of roll-up plays and bargaining power with insurance firms has made the space a very attractive one for investors. Unsurprisingly, three of the four largest collision-repair companies are PE-backed. If you’re interested in the trend, check out our webinar from last week.
