Mergers and Acquisitions in Poland

Q2 2024

Moderate optimism

After the second quarter of 2024, which was less thriving than the previous one (a drop from 95 to 82 transactions), forecasts for the recovery on the M&A market are still moder- ately optimistic. One third of CEOs in Poland are planning mergers and acquisitions this year, as indicated by The global M&A market's struggles with obstacles such as high interest rates, political uncertainty and valuation challenges resulted in a limited number of transactions in the first half of the year - a large part of the processes from 2023 were not completed. Behind the scenes, however, we are observing an increase in the activity of sellers who are preparing to enter the market with high-quality assets and mega-transactions (put on hold due to the relatively low activity of the largest companies).
