M&A Panel: Looking Forward - Deal Making and Business Values



As operations return to a new type of normal, questions remain about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on business valuations and the M&A market. The disruption from the coronavirus brings implications for buyer strategies, seller motivations, deal structuring, transaction volumes, and overall ability to close a transaction.

Our panel will explore the effects of COVID-19 on the M&A market, and share insights on the potential implications that they are seeing for the balance of 2020 in our free, one-hour webinar. Topics to be discussed include:

  • Comparisons to the 2008 financial crisis
  • Deal flow implications
  • Effect on business valuations and deal structure
  • COVID-19 impact on dry powder and credit markets
  • Sources of M&A opportunities
  • What companies should do now if they are considering buying or selling
