The nation's smallest businesses reported a greater interest in accessing capital during Q4 to expand their business, a signal that smaller companies are optimistic about market conditions and their growth potential leading into 2014.
Meantime, mid-sized US businesses trimmed their demand for capital for a fifth straight quarter, an indicator that business growth conditions favor smaller businesses over mid-sized US companies.
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.
