Capital Markets in the Age of Coronavirus

An M&A expert, Micky Barnea was interviewed by the leading newspaper Globes as part of an extensive analysis on the long list of major deals that are being canceled and the financial uncertainty in this period. The article highlights how huge corporations are able to afford what little companies and the self-employed can only dream of. According to Micky, "Starting in February, we noticed a phenomenon in which time has become elastic. Usually people strive to keep deals at a steady pace, and once the handshake is made, they want to move faster. Now, less people are hurrying to complete a deal. They are taking time to see what will happen next in the market.”
