COVID-19 not only impacted M&A by increasing the volume of deals to unprecedented levels, but it changed how and why deals are getting done as well. To understand these fast-changing dynamics, Oaklins sponsored this research by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services that looks into the future of global M&A.

The pandemic exposed striking differences in companies’ abilities to withstand crises. Those with scale were far better positioned. Scale became a factor in everything from deploying new technology to addressing labor shortages and supply chain issues. As buyers pursued increased scale through M&A, many mid-market companies saw this as an opportunity to sell at record-level valuations. Joanna Herman, Partner, Oaklins, New York

The survey of nearly 500 executives from across all geographies found that companies are using M&A to become more equipped to sustain future crises and to adapt their businesses to the post-pandemic economy.
