Over the past year, companies have confronted several new challenges in an already highly complex deal environment. Global economic activity is experiencing a broad-based and sharper-than-expected slowdown, with inflation higher than seen in several decades. The cost-of-living crisis, tightening financial conditions in most regions, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and the lingering COVID-19 pandemic all weigh heavily on the outlook. At the same time, geopolitical tensions are forcing companies to reassess their global supply chain and distribution models, as well as responses to the cost of energy crisis and the need to speed up the transition to renewable energy.
