The industry was rightly cautious for newdeals in09,many portfolio businesses have improved their relativemarket position this year and stronger new opportunities are now emerging."

Sadly, the reality is that the recovery phase out of recessioncanbe just as difficult, particularly when bank credit is tight and funding to support working capital growth/expansion is limited.
