Distressed M&A Outlook Series
Our industry experts share their thinking on distressed M&A opportunities in a variety of critical industries. Some sectors have high pent up demand and less price elasticity and are accordingly expected to quickly recover post re-opening. While others will sustain permanent, long-term impairment with the shift to remote working and move to online that will change demand.
Creative Destruction is a theory of economic innovation which describes the “process of industrial mutation that incessantly revolutionizes the economic structure from within, incessantly destroying the old one, incessantly creating a new one.”
With these principles in mind, our view is that the current downturn will be far deeper and longer than The Great Recession, and will extend well into 2021, rippling across many sectors as we have already bore witness in the first months of the pandemic. Over the coming weeks, we will share our thinking on distressed M&A opportunities in a variety of critical industries, including: Real Estate, Retail, Automotive, Food & Agriculture, Healthcare Services, Industrials, Media & Entertainment and Power & Renewables.
