    a question

    Just one more question. I read an article about an American private -equity funds and one sentence is very strange and I need help.
    " Whereas buy-out groups consider America a maturing market, they regard the old world, especially continental Europe, as a land of promise. Its cushioned corporate ways are particularly irresistible: the more padding there is to remove, the greater the potential rewards"
    I dont understand the words with red.
    maturing means growing up or ready to invest or something like this
    and what is the meaning of the" pace "of leveraged buy-outs
