    Corporate M&A and Carve Outs

    From operational due diligence to synergy acceleration and value creation

Improving Competitiveness Confidence Integration Synergy Savings Time to Value Realization

How has the global pandemic impacted the M&A market?

The M&A market and PE acquisitions entered 2020 at an all-time high with valuation multiples at their highest levels ever and considerable competition among corporate strategic buyers to find and acquire those elusive “diamonds in the rough.” The global pandemic transformed the market in the first half of the year as global M&A deal value fell by 41% compared with the same period of 2019 as lockdowns caused confidence to falter, deals to be put on hold and liquidity to evaporate. According to a report by leading international law firm, Allen & Overy, deal value in the US fell by 69% in this period and deal volume by 9%. In Europe deal value actually rose by 30% compared with the first half of 2019, boosted by a number of mega deals. However, this was offset by a 29% decrease in volume.

M&A is well-known for its agility and, as the world's economies begin the long process of recovery, it will undoubtedly bounce back (though perhaps not to pre-pandemic levels). Investors will home in on the companies and sectors that have proved the most resilient during the crisis such as healthcare, technology (as digital transformation accelerates) and life sciences. To succeed in this hyper-competitive market, corporate strategic buyers need to become smarter in their buying decisions, have a more robust investment thesis and accelerate the integration and time-to-value realization process.
