Many people have asked what impact COVID-19 will have on Mergers & Acquisitions in the printing and packaging industries. Most printing company owners have been rightfully focused on caring for their employees, reorganizing their businesses to function in a world of social distancing, applying for PPP loans and other government programs to assist them financially in getting through the current challenges, and unfortunately, downsizing staff to adjust to reduced workloads.

This webinar will include an update on trends and how the M&A market is shifting due to the impact of the pandemic. A key result is an expectation that we will see more tuck-ins as we come out of this crisis, which has placed significant stress on many businesses in our industry. For many of these businesses, finding a buyer who is willing to do a tuck-in is much preferable to simply closing the doors. Learn about the tuck-in process, various ways of configuring tuck-ins, how the pandemic will impact valuations and gain a general overview of the M&A environment in what is likely to be our new normal.
