The rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation means that we cannot look too far ahead to predict what will happen next, and many of us will be dealing with much more immediate and important personal and business issues than M&A. However for those already involved in an M&A process or about to embark on one, there are some immediate issues for buyers and sellers to consider.

We also make some general observations that apply to all M&A transactions.
