Lockdown - Reflections at the end of week 11

Week 11 was a curious mixture. Other stories have knocked Covid-19 down the running order of news broadcasts and off the front pages, and the speed and, at times, apparent randomness of the release of some lockdown restrictions and the introduction of others seem to have created in many quarters a sense of truce. It is notable that the ongoing number of Covid-19 related deaths is barely reported and, in that light, the very public succumbing to Covid-19 symptoms of the Business secretary in the House of Commons comes as a sharp reminder that it hasn’t gone away.... more

Corporate transactions outlook

The commercial and financial effects of the Covid-19 lockdown on many owner managed businesses have been significant and unprecedented, and have inevitably switched the focus of many businesses from expansion or a sale of the business to survival. This has led to many business owners believing that for the time being, funding will be hard to obtain outside the Covid loan schemes and that there will not be any prospect of a sale of the business for the foreseeable future. Whilst this is an accurate reflection of many aspects of the current situation, there are well funded investors who regard the current circumstances as creating significant opportunities to invest in or to acquire companies. To help SME owners who would be interested in exploring this avenue, this note looks at why there are investors in the market place and what they’re looking for.... more
