    How has the pandemic influenced and/or changed your M & A strategy – “Best Practices”.

    Hi Laura:

    The pandemic seems to have highly impacted many companies’ P&L, making it more difficult to have the resources for M&A activity. I know that the company I work for is trying to pass through cost to the customer with price increases but that impacts sales. Thus, unless you are in an industry that is profitable during the pandemic, it will be difficult to conduct M&A activity unless it is at a bargain…

    Hello Laura,
    The pandemic definitely impacted the whole business and social ecosystem. However, the impact was two-sided: negative and positive.
    Many companies shut down, registered losses or weaker financial performance, the supply chain was and is still disrupted.
    On the other hand, the surviving companies had to rethink their business model, to become more agile, innovative, flexible and lean. Digitalization, automatisation, innovation are positive booming trends that have been noticed especially as a result of the pandemic.
    Thnaks,
    Corina

    Hello dear M&A fellows,
    In your opinion, how the recent geopolitical events (Ukrainian war, change of world order, shifting of political power) affect the global M&A activity?
    Thanks.

    Integration is best implemented in a personal setting. Onboarding, employee announcement, and training needs to be done face-to-face. We attempted to integrate virtually and it did not work out well. As far as we have come I do not see a true replacement for face to face interaction

    When looking at M&A, be sure both companies tools have the capacity to scale remotely

    I think being able to do a hybrid integration is essential – while in-person has long been deemed the best option the pandemic showed us that being flexible and respectful to others’ needs regarding training, onboarding, etc. is the most sustainable option.
