The influence of the Middle Market business sector (businesses with $5 million to $500 million in revenues) in America is staggering.

The Middle Market is one of the most important drivers of America’s economy and yet, it flies largely under the radar.  It accounts for a third of private sector Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and jobs, and has been growing, even over the past four “recession” years. If the Middle Market were a country, its GDP would rank it as the fourth largest economy in the world, just behind Japan’s. Clearly, there is a need to better understand this important market sector and provide it with the level of support, attention, and advocacy it merits.

In an eye-opening and informative interview, Principal Advisor Jeffrey Potts of Gold Country Advisors, 23-year veteran dealmaker and Certified M&A Advisor (CM&AA) through the Alliance of Merger and Acquisition Advisors, can discuss:

  • What the marketplace looks like today for Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A)
  • Why the Middle Market is the nation’s surest best for economic recovery
  • How to put a value on your business especially in today’s uncertain economic climate
  • Bridging the “Value Gap” for middle market companies—what it is and how it is affecting the current marketplace

M&A is a careful blend of art and science. On one hand it is multi-disciplinary, complex, and analytical. On the other, it is all about people, relationships, nuances, timing, and instinct. These dynamic produces opportunity, coupled with conflict, ambiguity, and challenges, all supporting an exhilarating business ripe for those seeking to create value.
