COVID-19: Deal dynamics for M&A transactions arising out of the pandemic

29 April 2020

Uncertainty can result in a deal being delayed, altered or cancelled. Gowling WLG’s M&A team is hosting a series of webinars designed to explore, analyze and help clients and friends of our firm navigate the impacts uncertainty can have on transactions.

As the world grapples with the pandemic, buyers and sellers find themselves in a drastically altered marketplace. Deal dynamics have changed, quickly. The disruptions brought forth by COVID-19 have been unprecedented and will significantly alter how parties approach M&A transactions going forward. Our panel of M&A practitioners will share some of our insights on how deal dynamics can be expected to evolve as the economic downturn continues to take effect and governments cautiously attempt to ease some of the restrictions on our economies.

Topics addressed:

  • Anticipated deal activity
  • A marketplace where cash is king!
  • Valuation challenges
  • Cross-border considerations
  • Regulatory developments impacting M&A
  • Distressed deals
  • Current deal trends and developments
