Título: In the coming economy, M&A strategies emerging as a big deal
Publicación: London : Deloitte, 2020Descripción física: 6 p.Serie: (CFO Insights ; June 2020)Notas: Sumario: The global M&A market roared into this year with enough momentum to sustain its high-flying status, having logged six successive years when worldwide activity rocketed past the $3 trillion mark.1 While the pace of activity showed signs of slowing, it was difficult to see how it might take a precipitous plunge, short of an unforeseen and dramatic act of nature. But when the COVID-19 pandemic swept into the US, it curbed deal-making significantly. Between February and March, the number of announced deals dropped from 2,349 to 1,984, with deal value decreasing from just over $151 billion to about $130 billion.2 Instead of launching new deals, the urgent priority for many finance leaders was to resolve any in-progress transactions, re-evaluating their strategic assumptions and taking appropriate actions to safeguard their financial positions.Materia / lugar / evento: COVID-19 Pandemias Impacto económico Fusiones y adquisiciones Fusión de empresas Perspectivas económicas Adquisición de empresas Transacciones comerciales Estados Unidos Otros autores: Deloitte
