Brown Gibbons Lang & Company today announced the release of a special publication “State of Middle Market Financing in the U.S.”

In this edition, we conducted our first lender poll, asking participants to provide their outlook for the financing markets, addressing such issues as the economy, portfolio growth and credit quality, and capital availability. Our findings revealed that middle market cash flow lenders remain active—encouraged by a resurgence in quality deal flow. The debt markets continue to strengthen, and assuming that we stay on a path toward economic recovery and growth, an increased appetite for loan growth should fuel strong deal activity in 2011.
