CHICAGO -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- According to the National Center for the Middle Market (NCMM), the U.S. middle market saw a 5% increase in revenue growth compared to the S&P 500’s 1% revenue increase last year – demonstrating the mid-market’s position as a key engine of growth for the U.S. economy. Mid-market business leaders expect an increased need for working capital, capital expenditures and acquisitions in 2014, says GE Antares Capital, a leading middle market lender to private equity-backed companies.
“Despite challenges like healthcare and increasing operating costs, the overall financial health of middle market companies continues to improve,” said John Martin, president and CEO of GE Antares Capital. “We anticipate increased investment activity, especially within the technology, media, telecom and energy sectors throughout the year.”
At the InterGrowth Conference, which will be held April 28 - 30 in Las Vegas, NV, conference attendees can join moderator David Snow, co-founder & CEO, Privcap, and John Martin, president & CEO, GE Antares, for a panel discussion from the top mid-market leaders on the current state of private equity and the capital markets.
Sponsored by the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG), the event gathers together more than 2,000 business leaders involved in mid-market investment.
Show attendees can meet GE Capital at booth #117 in the Attendee Lounge and can also get the NCMM’s latest Middle Market Indicator, a quarterly economic survey of 1,000 c-suite executives from mid-sized firms, at booth #162. For information about the event, visit intergrowth.org.
