Pivoting for Growth – Update on COVID Acquisition Strategies

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to create business challenges and change the focus of many business leaders, now is the time to act, not react. Valuations are steady and we are seeing a rise in the number of buy-side deals as companies look at the opportunity for growth post-pandemic.

According to McKinsey & Company, “Programmatic M&A can help companies build resiliency, but this approach to deal making requires a solid game plan – one that will guide proactive deal sourcing and opportunistic deal evaluation. Having a clear M&A blueprint is even more critical as companies begin to consider how to rebound from COVID-19.”

This follow-up webinar will discuss how the market has changed during the past quarter with sourcing of acquisitions, valuation and financing, and structure and closing. In addition, we will look at which deals have been getting done over the past few months, deals which cannot get done, and the potential M&A hotspots that can help you grow, expand and diversify while your competitors continue to sit on the sidelines.

Session Take-aways:

• How to develop your M&A blueprint
• Market outlook and opportunities as COVID remains
• Expectations for the post-COVID market
• Sourcing strategies
• Understanding of bank lending environment
