When capital became scarce and business conditions deteriorated, companies instinctively moved to cut costs, defer expansion plans and went into ‘lock down’ until things improved.
The outlook is now more optimistic as the economy starts to recover. So it’s time to look more closely at how strategic transactions — acquisitions, divestments, IPOs, privatisations, mergers and alliances, debt and equity deals — can enhance competitive advantage and shareholder value.
In uncertain business circumstances, the margins for error are thin and lenders and investors are unforgiving of poorly thought out and executed deals.
