The article examines how the private equity sector is rediscovering its leverage in the global market. According to the author, market analysts are observing that the credit markets are outpacing mergers and acquisition (M&A) demand. The result of this trend is that certain properties have more leverage that is in line with what observers have been seeing in the period before the bubble. An example of this trend is WL Ross and Greenbrier's deal to lease railcars for 230 million U.S. dollars.
