The COVID-19 pandemic and the accompanying market downturn have resulted in widespread uncertainty felt on a global scale – including in the M&A space. This webinar will explore ways M&A transactions – particularly due diligence and related deal terms – have changed in the wake of the pandemic and how buyers and sellers can adapt their respective approaches to the critical due diligence step of a transaction.

Travel restrictions, pandemic-related “stress test” analyses, and limited accessibility to key assets have already had a significant impact on the due diligence process, including the need to extend exclusivity periods and provide buyers with better visibility into a seller’s pre and post-COVID performance. An analyses of these considerations, as well as the need to address a target company’s legal, regulatory, human resources, insurance, financial, and operational soundness in light of COVID-19 will be discussed.

While this webinar will cover these issues applicable to various industries, the presenters will highlight how such matters translate for technology-focused companies and investors.
