Note: This is an older edition from this report series. Here is a link to the most recent edition of the North American M&A Report.

The most recent edition of the North American M&A Report provides an overview of corporate dealmaking during the global pandemic in the second quarter of the year. In Q2 we saw large declines in M&A dealmaking in terms of both quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year comparisons. The report speaks to the impacts of COVID-19 on the economy and public markets, sector trends, and PE add-ons, as well as the potential for increased COVID-19-related regulation for both corporate acquirers and financial sponsors. Lastly, our report also spotlights public tech companies being taken private.
