The calm before the storm?


AGN Global Business Voice:
In this edition of the AGN Global Business Voice, the survey reveals the headline levels of M&A activity within our pandemic hit economies across the globe. Some of us have read reports that activity is up in some regions, other reports suggest there are some “bargain” businesses available for cash-rich buyers. Well, we have once again called on our global panel of business advisory accountants, spread around the world, to give us a very high-level global picture based on their opinion about what’s actually happening “on the ground”. 

The most striking thing about this research into M&A trends during the pandemic is the sense of an underlying and latent crisis. On the one hand, most economies are suffering the worst situation they’ve seen since the second world war, but on the other, we have only modest increases in distressed sales and business sales values remain steady. What is going on?
