Poland is assuming a greater role in mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in Central and Eastern Europe, according to the M&A Index report recently published by international law firm Allen & Overy.

The M&A market in Poland remains buoyant with several large telecommunications, consumer goods, and financial services projects in the pipeline. In the first quarter of this year, private equity funds showed a lot of activity in Poland. The largest private equity transaction in Polish history was carried out at the end of March when Montagu Private Equity acquired Emitel for 425 million euros. And Polkomtel, one of Poland’s largest cell phone operators, is expected to be sold in the near future. “Our report indicates a significant role for Poland in mergers and acquisitions in Central and Eastern Europe,” says Jarosław Iwanicki, a partner at Allen & Overy’s Warsaw office. The M&A Index report gives a complete description of the M&A situation around the world. An increase in the number and value of companies delisted by private investors and recommended public acquisitions were among major factors in stimulating global M&A transactions in the first quarter of 2011 compared with the same period in 2010. The report also indicates that the main driving force behind the worldwide increase in mergers and acquisitions is the positive first quarter results in the U.S.

Research carried out in compiling the report indicates that in Q1 2011, the value of recommended mergers and acquisitions grew 60 percent worldwide compared with the same period in 2010. There was also a 150 percent growth in value of companies delisted by private investors.
