IMAP closed 49 M&A deals worth more than $1.4bn in Q1 2020. 43% of the deals were cross-border. Deals were closed across 13 different sectors, with Industrials and Business Services the most represented.
Jurgis V. Oniunas, IMAP Chairman, said
“IMAP teams across the world were very active in the first quarter and even completed several transactions in March despite escalation of the Covid-19 crisis. While a significant drop-off in M&A activity is expected in Q2, IMAP partners will leverage decades worth of experience in navigating volatile market scenarios to continue serving clients in the challenging times ahead.”
