Mergers and Acquisitions in Poland

2023: A Year in Review

A year of decline, but not on the Polish market

In the M&A landscape of 2023, positive trends have also crystallized, the impact of which we will observe in the coming months of 2024. This is primarily due to the forecasted economic growth in Poland at the level of 4-6%, driven by robust household consumption expenditure, a decline in inflation and the prospect of spending the EU funds from the National Recovery Plan (KPO). The latter may benefit the green energy sector (EUR 14.3 billion (39.2% of total funds), intelligent mobility - EUR 7.75 billion (21.3%), healthcare - EUR 4.51 billion (12.4 %) or digital transformation - EUR 5.04 billion (13.8%). KPO will allocate EUR 4.85 billion (13.3%) for the competitiveness of the economy. Time is a threat. The funds that have just been released must be spent by August 31, 2026 year, hence the risk of not using the budget in time. In 2024, enterprises that significantly invest their resources in the development of AI technology may also turn out to be an important element of the mergers and acquisitions market.
