The third quarter of 2014 marked the third consecutive quarter of solid revenue growth for U.S. middle market firms. Employment growth has remained stable for the second straight quarter since significant increases were reported in 1Q 2014. While confidence among middle market leaders in the global economy is decreasing, most middle market executives remain confident in the national and local economies. In addition, capital investment plans remain stable in the 3Q as compared to the two prior quarters in 2014, and concerns about healthcare costs is easing, historically one of the top challenges for middle market firms.
