After coming off a fairly quiet period, more companies are looking to shed non-core assets, which will likely heat up the M&A market in 2014. Mergers & Acquisitions convened a special roundtable to discuss which companies are selling and who the likely the buyers of the corporate carve-outs will be. KeyBanc Capital Markets sponsored the event and the excerpted discussion that follows provides a range of perspectives on what middle market dealmakers can expect from these companies going forward. Participants included private equity investors, a lawyer and an investment banker. (Watch video interviews with the roundtable participants on our video site and below.)

Participants: Chris Behrens, CCMP Capital Advisors LLC; James Dougherty, Jones Day; Danielle Fugazy, Mergers & Acquisitions (moderator); Robert Landis, The Riverside Company; Paul Schneir, KeyBanc Capital Markets
