COVID-19: How to navigate M&A in a crisis and buy distressed assets

In this webcast, panelists will discuss mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in the wake of COVID-19, the role of corporate development in a crisis and the US bankruptcy code Section 363 sale process.

New M&A has slowed dramatically during the COVID-19 crisis, but C-suite and M&A executives should be thinking about their next strategic acquisitions to create long-term value for shareholders. At the same time, private equity firms should consider when and where to allocate dry powder.

This webcast will provide an overview of M&A performance in the last major economic downturn, the 2008 global financial crisis, and provide a deep dive on buying distressed assets, including Section 363 of the US bankruptcy code.

In particular, we will cover:

  • M&A deal value in a downturn
  • Remotely conducting M&A deal due diligence
  • Overview of Section 363 of the US bankruptcy code and the distressed asset sale process
  • The role of corporate development and PE deal teams in a crisis and M&A considerations
