The topics

  • Mergers & Acquisitions: M&A activity in the second quarter of this year was 31 percent lower than in the same period 2019. Many sales processes have been put on hold due to the Covid-19 crisis. We also expect subdued M&A activity for the rest of the year.
  • Fundraising: After a promising start to the year, the number of deals fell by 32 percent quarter on quarter. One reason: Many companies have switched from “growth” to “survival mode”.
  • Capital markets: In February, share prices in Europe saw the sharpest decline since World War II. Technology company stocks have since rallied and are currently trading at pre-crisis levels, showing that some players have actually benefited from the Covid-19 crisis.
  • KPMG insights  -also included in the document are key takeaways from the KPMG Cloud Monitor 2020 relating to the development of cloud use and experience of cloud users in Germany.
