The latest data from the polish M&A market

As predicted, the M&A market in Poland in the 1Q 2019 continued to grow steadily, although there was a slight slowdown. The volume of transactions decreased - we recorded a total of 46 transactions (a 26% decrease compared to Q4 2018 and an 8% increase compared to Q1 2018). Transactions values were smaller than those at the end of the year - among those with the disclosed value, small and medium deals prevailed.
