Need concrete proof that the middle market is the U.S. economy’s heavyweight on growth?
ACG’s newest Growth Economy data offers just that. For the second straight year, this
comprehensive look at U.S. businesses provides clear substantiation that midsize companies
are responsible for a disproportionate share of economic improvement as measured by
revenue and job creation.
Moreover, the updated GrowthEconomy.org data also reveals that private equity investment is the leading driver of jobs and sales growth in the middle market, that broad swath of
businesses with $10 million to $1 billion in sales. The Growth Economy website allows users
to review middle-market company performance by U.S. region, including by state, congressional district and metropolitan area.
“With refreshed data from 1995-2013, GrowthEconomy.org shows that private capital-
backed middle-market companies outperform other companies on sales, which drives
employment growth,” said Gary A. LaBranche, CAE, president and CEO of ACG Global.
“Private equity investment has a positive, powerful and profound impact on the U.S.
economy and specifically on the middle market.”
