Results from the latest Pepperdine Private Capital Access (PCA) Index quarterly report show access to capital for businesses of all sizes increased in Q1 2014 from the previous quarter and is the highest since the inception of the report in Q2 2012. The PCA Index number was 28.3 in Q1 2014, up 1.9 percent from 27.8 in Q4 2013. For comparison, the lowest PCA Index number was 25.6 in Q1 2013. A value of less than fifty for an Index represents a low level of access or demand. Thus, while access to capital remains limited, this latest increase represents a solid improvement.

The results are part of the most recent Pepperdine Private Capital Access (PCA) Index report, a private capital markets data survey produced quarterly by Pepperdine University's Graziadio School of Business and Management, in partnership with Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp.

About the Pepperdine Private Capital Access Index

Research conducted by the Pepperdine Private Capital Markets Project, the PCA Index is a quarterly indicator produced by the Graziadio School of Business and Management at Pepperdine University in partnership with Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp. The index will be released for the first time in late summer 2012. The purpose of the PCA Index is to gauge the demand of small and medium-sized businesses for financing needs, the level of accessibility of private capital, and the transparency and efficiency of private financing markets.
