CNBC correspondent Bob Pisani kicked off the day by highlighting the impact of upcoming EU economic summits, regional infrastructure projects in China, and the Facebook IPO on equity markets.
Then the financial decision-makers of two mid-market companies were joined by Larry Leibowitz, COO of NYSE Euronext, and Stuart Aronson, CEO of GE Capital Sponsor Finance, to discuss what they are seeing in the markets. The panel reported experiencing improved access to bank lending and financial markets, although fewer companies are choosing to go public. Fluctuations in commodity prices and uncertainty around healthcare costs continue to impact mid-sized firms.
