Dave discussed deal structuring in today's turbulent market. Attendees gained insight into deal structuring best practices and how to understand the tax implications of different deal structures. How has the CARES act and PPP Loans factored into deal structuring?
Morrissey Goodale’s M&A Symposium discussed how the COVID-19 crisis and associated “economic pause” have impacted the AE and environmental industry and how it’s consolidating. The pace of deal-making in the U.S. has slowed 10% over last year’s record-setting pace. Mergers have slowed — but they haven’t stopped. The fundamental factors that were driving record M&A activity prior to the COVID crisis remain in place. And they will serve to accelerate consolidation as the industry adjusts to a new normal.
M&A will be “different” in the short-term. Some markets – such as healthcare and public infrastructure, for example, will be hotter than others. Firms serving those sectors will be in higher demand. Some regional economies will come back online sooner – making them relatively more attractive for buyers.
This livestream edition of Morrissey Goodale's popular M&A Symposium provided the first opportunity for buyers, sellers and investors to see how industry deal-making has changed nationally as a result of the pandemic and learn what lies ahead for the balance of the year and beyond. Seven bespoke sessions during the day covered all of the important topics including M&A Trends, Deal Pricing, Deal Structuring, Deal Closing, Buyers Perspective and Outlook, Integration, and Q&A with the M&A Experts and Panelists.
