Press Release: Competition for capital set to intensify

NEW YORK, March 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The split between cash-rich businesses and those in need of capital has set the stage for a bifurcated economy, with growing challenges for small- and medium-sized companies, finds the Deloitte study "A Tale of Two Capital Markets."

Based on an analysis of debt in more than 9,000 large companies in the G20, the report summarized the looming global debt picture: competition for capital will intensify as over $11.5 trillion of financing will be due in the next five years, likely limiting the availability of debt capital. This is made all the more challenging by public sector deficits that create significant new competition and volatility in capital markets.
