OCTOBER 20, 2023 – We are proud to announce that Sutton Place Strategies has named HCI a top quartile deal originator for the lower middle market! This part of the market includes deals with a $10-249 million enterprise value range. SPS released their 2023 PE Deal Origination Benchmark Report last week which is the industry standard for private equity deal sourcing analytics. The report provides an objective analysis of HCI’s sourcing performance in the context of its peers. We have sourced over 2,000 deals in the last year alone, thanks to the great work Tim Frend and Michael Allen do leading our business development efforts.
