We are intensely focused on the health of our people, our firm and our portfolio companies during this global pandemic. We are taking the steps needed to keep our team safe while ensuring the continuity of our business. We also continue pursuing new investment opportunities. We have access to capital and a lot of experience investing in dislocated markets. We are adjusting our models and adapting every day, but our M&A teams are still hard at work.”
