ALERT: Takeovers in the UK

Covid - 19 Acquisition Opportunities

Whilst its clear that M&A activity has declined significantly since the outbreak of Covid-19 (it was already on a slight downward curve), companies with healthy balance sheets should use this time of declining valuations as an opportunity to acquire assets that will drive long term growth. Not only do lower valuations assist in driving long-term value but more crucially acquisitions made when the economy is weak facilitates the company executing and delivering a strategic goal while others are more focussed on survival allowing the business to enjoy above average growth rates when the economy normalises.
