An exclusive online discussion for legal leaders across Europe.
M&A Bounceback: Are You Ready?
The bounceback in deal making is about to hit. But are organisations in the EU ready for it? The year 2019 and Q1 2020 saw record levels of investment in the PE and VC space across the globe and businesses are already preparing for an M&A comeback in 2021.
Technology disruption, changing consumer behavior and the slowdown in market growth brought about by the global pandemic, is driving companies towards the M&A market. Are organisations likely to make a move over the coming months; or is the dust yet to settle?
- What kinds of deals are getting done? Are they deals that were already underway before the virus hit, or are they new business? What’s convincing the parties to move forward?
- Are there sectors where uncertainty about the future has diminished in a way that’s promoting more deals?
- Are sellers looking to other forms of financing to raise cash?
- How are clients handling valuation of businesses in times of uncertainty around the future?
