If we needed any more proof that a successful business today is a global business, consider a recent Bank of America Merrill Lynch survey of U.S.-based middle market companies. In the 2013 CFO Outlook Midyear Update, more than three out of four executives said their companies are doing business internationally. That figure is even more incredible when you consider that 18 months earlier it was only 54 percent. Clearly, international markets have been important to these companies’ revenue growth during the economic recovery. And the number of midmarket firms looking to grow globally may continue to climb, as many of the business conditions necessary for expansion—such as access to low-cost credit—remain stronger than they have been in years past.
