NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 27, 2012) - In volatile M&A and leveraged finance markets, knowing what's market is crucial, but finding reliable, up-to-date private transactions deal data can be difficult. This is particularly true for middle market private equity transactions, as most resources either focus on larger, public company buyouts or have access to a limited universe of publicly-filed private deal information. Practical Law Company, a provider of practical legal know-how to attorneys, will present a free webinar, "2012 Trends in Middle Market Private Equity-Sponsored M&A," on October 10, 2012, at 12:30PM ET (9:30AM PT).
During the 60-minute webinar, Jeff Hess, attorney editor with PLC's Corporate & Securities service, will lead a discussion with Eunu Chun, partner with Kirkland & Ellis LLP, and Andrew Greenberg, CEO of GF Data Resources LLC, the most reliable and comprehensive source of data on middle market private equity-sponsored M&A transactions. The panelists will review recent and historical key deal term metrics for private equity-sponsored M&A transactions in the $10-250 million deal size range sourced from GF Data's confidential private deal database, including key "deal points" such as indemnification cap and escrow amounts, deal volume and valuation trends (including industry-specific trends), and senior and subordinated leverage multiples. Our experts will also weigh in on current market dynamics and what lies ahead for middle market deal making, to be followed by a question and answer session.
"We are excited to be presenting this unique program with GF Data and Kirkland & Ellis," said Hess. "By providing access to private deal information that is unavailable to the public, along with expert analysis of this data, we're able to provide deal professionals with key insights into current market dynamics to help them more effectively negotiate these types of transactions."
