Navigating M&A Deal Activity During and Post COVID-19

14 April 2020

At the beginning of 2020, it was expected that M&A activity for the coming year would surpass the level of activity experienced in 2019. The outbreak of COVID-19 has significantly changed this expectation; with the unpredictability of the magnitude and uncertainty of the pandemic’s potential impact significantly impacting business confidence.

However, the COVID-19 shock may actually propel global M&A activity in the months to come, as businesses will seek to raise capital and identify opportunities created by adversity to execute acquisitions of assets and/or businesses at more equitable valuations. Opportunities may also arise in the stressed assets/ insolvency domain, where banks and lending institutions may look to salvaging such assets post the crisis period.
