An unsuspected shock has hit our everyday lives and impacted business in ways we have not seen in our lifetime. In this difficult situation, our primary concern is everyone’s health and wellbeing, amongst family, colleagues and clients. In Alpha we try to live by the old saying “keep calm and carry on”. We stay in close contact with our customers and business partners. Despite the current situation, several of our M&A processes are progressing well.
As seasoned finance professionals we have lived through financial crises from the crash of 1987 and onwards. In the midst of every crisis lies opportunity. There is light at the end of the tunnel. Sudden macro shocks and crises require fast reaction to mitigate both short- and long-term effects for long term survival.
