TITLE: TMC Conference_Chris Grose_Tech Outlook

Chris Grose: The future today, in my opinion, is as bright as it's ever been. TMC is going to continue to be the engine for the US economy. Now on the M&A side, companies remain cautious given the macro uncertainty. What's the one loan bright spot? It's been sponsor activity. So we've seen a good amount of tech privates and we expect to see more.

And the debt markets have just been, frankly, more resilient than the equity markets. And we expect a relatively healthy financing backdrop to support M&A going forward.
