The decline in March financings probably reflects both some pulling forward of deals into earlier months as well as a slow down in new deals due to the pandemic and related economic uncertainty, offset in part by a desire in March to complete financings as quickly as possible to make sure existing companies were adequately capitalized for the uncertain times ahead.

The world needs a boost to keep financings going and DTM initiatives are the solution. DTM initiatives were built to support companies — as simple solutions that deliver results with speed. Now is the time to take advantage of the tools available and power forward — capitalized and competitive.
