In the second edition of our COVID-19 market update, Crasner Capital looks to market developments since our last publication in both developed and emerging countries, as we continue to see the effect of the pandemic on economies, the responses of different Governments, and the ability for corporates and private market players to close a deal.
Despite ‘M&A going MIA’ and deals being put on ice – corporates such as Aon, Thermo Fisher Scientific and Microsoft and private equity firms such as AfricInvest, Verod Capital Management and Finnfund have still come to the table and closed deals in the last month.
Special thanks to our expert for this edition, Priyanka Fouda from Development Partners International for her excellent insight into COVID-19’s impact on the African continent, how the public and private sector need to work together, and what this can mean for Private Equity players and their portfolios.
