Navigating M&A Deal activity during and post COVID-19

30 March 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a global economic downturn, resulting in a significant number of M&A deals being renegotiated, stalled or even called off. 

However, given the circumstances, M&A activity in the global market will not come to a complete standstill. Acquirers who have ample liquidity and with a high risk propensity are likely to take advantage of the situation and secure their deals with more favourable pricing.

Additionally since most conventional approaches may no longer be relevant, these circumstances will give rise to new ways for doing deals and fresh perspectives and tools for evaluating deals and assessing risks.

To enable stakeholders navigate the M&A process in this unprecedented environment, we have created a brief reference guide of key focus areas to ensure a successful M&A deal.
