KeyCorp Research Report

On June 27, 2013, KeyBank Commercial Bank (KeyBank) reported the results of its quarterly Middle Market Business Sentiment Survey. According to the survey, 2013 is not the year that middle market companies will set new records for M&A activities, which is contrary to the earlier predictions for the year. As per the survey, 49% of the middle market leaders polled had no interest in making an acquisition, while 57% of companies indicated that they will expand their business within the next six months by adding employees, buying equipment, or adding new facilities. Cindy Crotty, Head of Commercial Banking Segment at KeyBank, said that it appears the middle market wants to hedge its bets given ongoing uncertainty about significant issues, such as the US debt crisis and compliance with the Affordable Health Care Act. "Until they have more clear information about these big issues, middle market companies just are not willing to take the risk of investing in and integrating acquisitions," said Crotty.
