Our Latest Issue - July 2020:
Navigating Deal-Making in the Time of COVID-19

Persevering through unprecedented challenges amidst a global pandemic


The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted billions of people around the globe, and businesses have seen a historic 10-year run of economic expansion suddenly upended. As a result, it’s much more difficult to determine accurate valuations for deals and conduct thorough due diligence, leading many potential buyers and sellers to adopt a “wait and see” approach for transactions in 2020.
 
On the plus side, there are some indications that deal activity is starting to pick up. The current M&A landscape varies from industry to industry, and certain sectors have seen more movement than others in recent weeks. As we look toward the future, it’s important to examine the near-term measures that businesses and investors should consider and assess the opportunities that may be available.
 
Read more in our latest issue, including:
  • Spotlight on Private Equity – a down market can present unique opportunities for those well-positioned
  • Transaction Issues – a shift in focus and priorities is altering the deal landscape
  • Distress Checklist – businesses should evaluate signs of distress alongside strategies for perseverance
