  • Have there been any changes to the approach and structuring of deals to cope with the situation?
  • What has happened to valuations?
  • Are there distressed opportunities in the market now?
  • What will it take for the market to come back?
  • What should sellers of businesses be thinking about in this environment?
  • Are you optimistic or pessimistic about the near term future for deals?
