Nexia International Webinar | M&A and COVID-19: From stress to distressed

Date and time: Tuesday 22 June at 3pm UK time
Area: COVID-19, Advisory
Duration: 75 minutes

Please join us for this webinar where Nexia international TRI and M&A experts from Brazil, the United States and Germany, speak about distressed M&A, a key part of many successful restructuring and turnaround situations.

COVID-19 caused dramatic shifts in the M&A market in 2020, as distressed M&A transactions went from 7% of all transactions pre-Covid to 30% at the end of April 2020 (source: Datasite). Now both types of M&A activity – strategic and distressed – continue at higher levels than before COVID-19.

This webinar will look at distressed M&A case studies and includes a panel discussion, that will dive into best practice and the specific characteristics and differences of strategic and distressed M&A.

Case studies:

  • Jeff Manning, Partner at CohnReznick Capital, USA will present on NJOY, one of the largest independent US distributors of e-cigarettes and the first e-cigarette company to file for bankruptcy in the USA with liabilities of $63.9 million at filing. He will cover how CohnReznick Capital provided strategic advice and valuation expertise, resulting in a successful sale and optimal returns for investors.
  • Paulo J. Carvalho, Managing Partner, and Rainer Koellgen, Senior Advisor, from Nexia member firm PP&C in Sao Paulo, Brazil will present on how what started as a smooth strategic transaction from a multi-billion dollar agrobusiness player turned into a more roller coaster M&A process during COVID-19!
  • Andre Laner from Ebner Stolz, Germany will describe a carve-out and sale, of a loss-making division of a large, globally active supplier of parts for the automotive and railway industries. The transaction involved activities in Germany, the US and several other countries and approx.. 500 employees. Buyer was a private equity fund.
