An update on the M&A market

Oaklins’ specialists Dr. Jürg Stucker and David Zürrer zone in on buyer structure and deals over the last decade to analyze underlying industry trends and evaluate the extent of COVID-19’s contribution to dampening recent transactions and valuations. They share their industry expertise to forecast what lies ahead and identify sectors benefiting from social distancing that may prove attractive to strategic investors.
