Continued weakness in Healthcare Equipment M&A activity

The levels of M&A activity within the Healthcare equipment and supplies industry continues to be significantly weaker, relative to prior year levels, in the wake of heightened uncertainty driven by the Coronavirus pandemic and a slow down in the global economy. According to the latest April data published by the Institute of Mergers, Acquisitions and Alliances (IMAA), both the volume of transactions as well as the value of transactions are significantly lower than prior years, particularly for larger transactions valued at over $250 million.
