Dominant transactions between Polish entities

The popularity of the Virtual Data Room on the Polish M&A market remains at a satisfactory level. Publicly available data shows that in Q2 2018, as many as 37% of transactions were organised using this technology, (compared to 46% in Q1). This is not surprising to us. The VDR is synonymous with the secure management of confidential information and the guarantee of a professionally conducted transaction, which has become particularly important after the entry into force of RODO and the tightening of data protection regulations.
