RBC Mid-Market M&A COVID-19 Update

RBC Mid-Market 2020 Q1 Update


As a business owner, COVID-19 is something you probably never imagined happening. Now that it has, over the last 7 weeks, you have probably been working harder than ever trying to figure out the various funding and stimulus packages, how to take care of your loyal employees, support your customers, and possibly pivot your operations. Now, if you just happened to be one of those business owners who was thinking this was going to be the year you were going to sell your business and move on to the next phase of your life, well, we think you’re really going to enjoy our very first podcast, and conversation today.


Jim Noble and I speak with Robert Hickey, managing director and head of RBC’s Mid-market M&A team. Rob is a really impressive guy. He’s been executing deals in the private markets for nearly 16 years, and in his 5-years of being with RBC, has built a team of 30 incredible members who advise business owners, management teams, and shareholder groups specifically on private company transactions. Normally Rob is traveling coast to coast to coast, but we were able to lock him down for 30-minutes to discuss how COVID-19 is affecting the private markets. Rob gives us a very thorough overview on what’s happening in the market currently and his thoughts on things going forward.


Have a listen and let me know you what you think.
