Our Latest Issue:
Assessing Opportunity Ahead of Uncertainty

Capitalizing on available options for continued perseverance

More than any year in recent memory, the economic landscape has shifted drastically, and repeatedly, during 2020. Relative stability today may turn to volatility tomorrow. However, unlike the 2008 recession, the present climate offers numerous favorable options for businesses like yours to access capital. By examining and monitoring the specific needs of your business and the outlook for your industry, you can assess all available options and capitalize on the opportunities that best set up a path to sustained success.

Although deal activity slowed to a trickle during the latter part of Q1 2020 and throughout much of Q2, that translated to a significant backlog in the M&A pipeline. The result: deal-making returned in full force during Q3.

Pent-up M&A activity made for eager buyers and sellers, which led to a record-setting deluge of deals as market conditions steadied somewhat. While deal-makers remain eager to act during a window of relative stability, buyers and sellers remain wary of the disruption that marked the spring, mindful that those conditions could return suddenly.
