Mergers and Acquisitions in a Market Under Duress

In the wake of COVID-19, autism service providers, large and small, are finding it increasingly difficult to sustain their operations – and their professional staff – under declines in census, hours, billings, and revenues.

How do you balance the sometime competing interests of valuation, speed, and best fit? Which companies might be the best partners? How might you structure a deal? What should you be wary of?  In short, how can you wrest the best possible outcome out of less than ideal circumstances?
