ACG Florida Insights – Navigating the Pandemic Through the Private Equity Lens: Independent Sponsors

July 2, 2020 | 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Grab lunch at your desk and join us from 12:00 to 1:00 PM for a lively discussion from capital providers’ and independent sponsors’ perspectives:

  • How has the pandemic changed the way capital providers think about supporting independent-sponsor deals and the way independent sponsors communicate with capital providers?
  • Has the pandemic caused deals to be harder and take longer to close? If so, what needs to happen before we can return to a more normal timeline?
  • What is the outlook for independent sponsors in the near, intermediate, and long terms?
