KeyCorp Research Report

On June 27, 2013, KeyBank Commercial Bank (KeyBank) reported the results of
its quarterly Middle Market Business Sentiment Survey. According to the
survey, 2013 is not the year that middle market companies will set new records
for M&A activities, which is contrary to the earlier predictions for the year.
As per the survey, 49% of the middle market leaders polled had no interest in
making an acquisition, while 57% of companies indicated that they will expand
their business within the next six months by adding employees, buying
equipment, or adding new facilities. Cindy Crotty, Head of Commercial Banking
Segment at KeyBank, said that it appears the middle market wants to hedge its
bets given ongoing uncertainty about significant issues, such as the US debt
crisis and compliance with the Affordable Health Care Act. "Until they have
more clear information about these big issues, middle market companies just
are not willing to take the risk of investing in and integrating
acquisitions," said Crotty. The Full Research Report on KeyCorp - including
full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price targets - is available to
