M&A Market Grows Despite Crisis

Poland is one of only two countries in Europe that have seen its merger and acquisition (M&A) market grow over the past five years, according to a report by international law firm Allen & Overy.

In the last five years, the value of M&A transactions worldwide was about half that recorded when the market was at its peak in 2006-2007. Poland, which recorded a 1-percent increase in the value of its M&A transactions, stands out particularly against Hungary, which saw its market plummet by 80 percent, as well as against Germany, whose M&A market declined by 56 percent, and the Czech Republic, where the value of M&A transactions fell by 16 percent. Poland was only outranked by Slovakia, which reported a spectacular rise of 1,829 percent, ranking that country number one worldwide. Despite the dynamic growth of the Slovak M&A market, the value of transactions in Slovakia was just over half that in Poland.

Poland’s stability in terms of mergers and acquisitions is a particularly big achievement compared with global trends, according to experts. The global M&A market has declined substantially over the past five years. Today it is about 49 percent smaller than in the 2006/2007 period, though the number of M&A transactions has decreased by only 18 percent.

China has become the global leader in the terms of the M&A market value over the past five years. The value of M&A transactions in China has increased by an impressive 279 percent over the past five years.
