A Word from BDO’s US Deal Advisory Team in PitchBook’s Q2 2022 Global M&A Report

Seven months ago, we were coming off a record year in private equity M&A. Fund managers were looking to ride the fundraising wave of 2021 into 2022 and were starting new—and bigger—funds. In the crosshairs were more deals and more profitable exits.

Fast-forward to the present, and the focus has flipped to recession risks and concerns.

What’s different about today’s economic climate, and what does it mean for private equity?

Capital providers seem to be increasingly nervous. How will capital raising strategies have to adapt?

In this context, how may post-M&A integration challenges evolve?

What silver linings could exist should a recession occur?

BDO’s US deal advisory team explores how firms are getting creative—or simplifying—as a recession looms.
