Lower Middle Market Weekly Outlook

According to Preqin, 2013 was a good year to be an LP. The organization reported that “institutional investors received $568bn in distributions from their private equity investments last year, the highest annual amount ever recorded.”

Of equal importance, the distributions outstripped capital calls by a record margin. The strong performance made the news that Calpers was rethinking its strategy around ‘risky’ alternatives that much more surprising.

In other news, Shake Shack is going public and we announced the completion of our Series B last week, led by Comcast Ventures.

Opinions:

This week in history… the Bankruptcy Act of 1841 is passed, allowing thousands to voluntarily declare bankruptcy for the first time (1841).
