Multiple Reasons Valuations Seem High
Dec 19, 2017
There’s no question that deal valuations are at a post-recession peak, yet many middle-market deal-makers suspect prices are even higher than the data suggest, in large part because of the characteristics of the businesses they’re buying, such as size and industry niche.
Serving the Middle Market
GF Data was founded in 2006 by deal professionals committed to giving themselves and others a more accurate view of transactions being completed in the lower middle market. One of customers labelled our reports “Truth Serum for the Middle Market” —a departure from the inflated or off-point information previously available. We liked it, and have embraced it as a statement of what we try to contribute to the profession.
GF Data principals are featured speakers at industry conferences and thought leader programs.
