    In my opinion the impact is currently limited, with businesses cautiously monitoring the developments.

    Our biggest challenge is the negative impact on travel. Normally we spend a great deal of time in person with the acquired firm team members and our Workstreams. It’s critical to build strong relationships based on trust as early as possible. We’ve all seen how much can be accomplished virtually throughout the entire COVID situation, but Omicron is adding additional stress to an already stressful situation for an acquired firm. Cheers

    I think that COVID have made things hard to particular business sectors, but in terms of how it impacted M&A I think that it made it harder for investors to evaluate companies.

    I agree with the travel impact. Personal interaction is critical to forming relationships and trust through the integration process. HR onboarding, leadership meetings, and IT trainings done remotely do not have the same impact when done in person. Its a disadvantage for sure.
