Srividya Gopal, Managing Director and South East Asia Leader in Duff & Phelps’ Valuation Advisory Services practice, was featured in Mergermarket discussing M&A indicators in a post COVID-19 world. In the article, she elaborated on the valuation impact of the current business uncertainty and names three categories that are expected to see stable valuations in the near term.

“There are three sectors that are expected to see stable valuations, if not an uptick. The first is the ‘essentials’ category which includes healthcare, life sciences, food, household essentials, power and utilities. The second is technology, telecom, IT infrastructure and internet-enabled services, among others. The third is ‘early adapters’- the industries that are able to adapt faster to the new normal such as financial services and education,” Srividya commented.

She further added, “The new normal in valuation is to budget for uncertainties through planning for different scenarios. This also gives rise to a more nuanced deal structuring and financing, including having earn-outs, contingent considerations, indemnities and more clauses that could be tied to actual results rather than only predictions.”
