1 in 4 Businesses Still Operating Below Capacity

Roughly 13 months into the pandemic, data from the Market Pulse survey of business brokers and M&A advisors suggests that 1 in 4 small and medium businesses are still temporarily closed or operating below capacity.

Advisors indicated that of businesses on the M&A market, 29% proved themselves wholly “covid-proof” and either benefited or remained unaffected by the pandemic. Another 46% are back to operating at full capacity.
