AGENDA 

1:00 - 1:45 pm - ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION

ROUNDTABLE

Negotiating and Closing Deals in a Post-Covid Marketplace

Because the COVID-19 crisis and the resulting distress are not geographically restricted, industry-specific, or size-specific, private equity investors of all stripes on both the buy and sell side of M&A transactions need to prepare for a high-risk, high-pressure period in an economy so unique that it’s all but impossible to predict accurately based on historical models or previous recessions.

  • What are the strategies to mitigating the risks inherent in post-Covid deals?
  • Calculating purchase price as a multiple of EBITDA-C.
  • What negotiating terms and conditions can independent sponsors expect?
  • How has Covid impacted the due diligence process?
  • What capital providers will expect before investing in distressed businesses?
  • What unique market intelligence is needed to close distressed transactions?
