The Covid crisis is causing an unprecedented economic recession but the stock market is currently at its highest level. Will this increase or decrease the number of transactions in the coming years? Your opinion?
I believe there must be an increase in the number of M&A deals, as like any crisis – COVID either pushes some companies out of business, or brings in new companies, so in either case there must be a surge of deal count.
Good topic and great feedback from the participants!
In my opinion, the number will increase as the world is recovering from this pandemic and restrictions being lifted one piece at a time with everyone finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel; specially, those sharks that are always searching for distressed acquisitions.
