Reimagining M&A Trends in These Unprecedented Times presented by Peter Schaefer of New Direction Partners


In this educational session, New Direction Partners experts will present an update on current printing and packaging industry trends, and how the M&A market is shifting due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

A key result is an expectation that we will see more tuck-ins as we come out of this crisis, which has placed significant stress on many businesses in our industry. For many of these businesses, finding a buyer who is willing to do a tuck-in is much preferable to simply closing their doors.

During this session, you will:

  • Learn about the tuck-in process and various ways of configuring tuck-ins
  • Gain a general overview of the M&A environment in what is likely to be our new normal
  • Better understand if COVID-19 will impact your company valuation

This webinar is presented by Graphic Arts Association and co-sponsored by Print & Graphic Communications Association.
