Join us on Dec. 7 as The Deal hosts a roundtable presented by global law firm Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP to discuss the paramount concerns at the intersection of M&A and finance, including:
Will lending that has favored sectors viewed as lockdown resistant continue or begin to fade?
How will dealmaking be affected by the health of the leveraged finance market – which has come into question in recent weeks despite a record volume of loans issued for LBOs and other M&A coming into the market this summer – as climbing interest rates and inflation pressures more generally could set industries that have yet to recover from Covid on a path toward default?
How big of a role will procurement finance play for businesses attempting to navigate the complex supply constraints of the Covid era?
And will alternative M&A financing methods grow in popularity as traditional lenders tighten their purse strings?
