EMEA M&A: A new state of play

Webinar in Partnership with the Financial Times Live

DATE: Tuesday, 30 June 

TIME: 14:00 BST (15:00 CET) 

 

What will the new M&A environment in EMEA look like after the coronavirus pandemic and what shifts can dealmakers make to look ahead of the crisis and find new opportunities?

Hosted by Datasite and The Financial Times, this webinar presents a fresh perspective on these pressing questions, as well as the wider state of play in EMEA dealmaking and seeks to map out what the new world of M&A will look like post-pandemic.

EMEA has experienced a decade-long boom in M&A activity, highlighted by some of the largest deals in history being made in recent years. 2020 was set to be similar, however, in March this year, the coronavirus pandemic hit the global economy hard with volatile financial markets, a huge drop in consumer spending and surges in unemployment levels. Not only did dealmaking activity slowdown but it immediately had leaders in private equity, investment banking, advisory and law pondering a completely different playing field for future dealmaking once the economy starts to emerge out of the crisis.
