Lower Middle Market Weekly Outlook

Good morning, all. With the new year just days away, many are predicting that the oil industry will be particularly active for M&A in 2015. Given the recent downdraft in the price of oil, smaller oil and gas explorers are most likely to be targets for takeovers — especially given the overall friendly deal environment that will likely persist.

Last week also had some news about the private equity gender gap: Preqin learned that women occupied just 11 percent of senior level positions in PE firms — a rate they considered “notably low,” despite being higher than previous years. The same study revealed that only 12% of LPs believe having more women in senior private equity positions would improve returns. Fifty nine percent, however, believe that gender diversity would be a good thing for a firm as a general principle.
