In the first quarter of 2021, we recorded 76 transactions on the mergers and acquisitions market in Poland. This is 13 more than in the previous quarter and 21 more than in the corresponding period of 2020. While the predicted economic slowdown was the main challenge for the global mergers and acquisitions market two years ago, this year it is the consequences of the pandemic. Despite the restrictions, the M&A market in Poland continues to grow. Which industries were the most popular in the last three months?
The pandemic did not end with the introduction of COVID-19 vaccine, and its eects will be long-term. Based on the experiences gathered last year, more companies will decide to change their strategy or optimize it this year. Entrepreneurs are looking for technological solutions that will accelerate the process of restructuring, obtaining financing or selling the company. As a tool designed to streamline the processes of mergers and acquisitions, the Virtual Data Room type system was used in over one-third of transactions on the Polish market in the last quarter.
