The pandemic has not only affected public wellbeing but also had a material impact on global economy. Businesses have shut down, thousands of workers have been laid off, supply chains have been disrupted, and consumer spending has plummeted. Companies had put the M&A deals on hold and set their priorities only on keeping the businesses running amid the pandemic. Nation-wide lockdowns and travel restrictions have hindered the process of due diligence, resulting in deals being cancelled or postponed. In this article, we will discuss how the corona virus crisis has impacted the M&A deal-making and how buyers and sellers can each adjust to the changed circumstances to minimize their exposure to the risks associated with the pandemic.
