The article throws light on the impact of the pandemic on the major funding industry for the country, that is, private equity (PE) firms. About 59% of the FDI comes via this route, and growth of major sectors is impacted by their investment. Last few years, there have been discussions about dry powder availability with the PE firms. This is the time to create opportunity in crisis for both the parties (the investors and the target firms). As seen during the 2008 crisis, many deals which materialized gave huge benefits to the investors. The article motivates the industry not to take a backseat and make the best out of the situation.
