Week in Review: Debts, Trillions, and Bubbles

Happy Friday, all. While the lower middle market was fairly quiet, there was a bit of legal activity this week: Michael S. Steinberg was convicted of insider trading, the Volcker Rule received a slight modification for smaller banks, and Kenneth B. Mehlman took the helm of PEGCC. As a result, 2014 could be an interesting year for deal professionals – especially since PE spending power has topped $1 trillion (again) and there may be secret IPOs in the pipe.

In other news, investment banking revenues near 2007 levels, there may be buyout bubble, and Riverside Company acquired Mercareon.
