The second quarter of 2019 ended with a total of 63 transactions on the Polish M&A market, amounting to over 36% increase compared to the first quarter (46 transactions). In total, the half-year increase in relation to the analogical period of 2018 amounted to 11%. The market is fragmented and attractive to foreign investors.
The reported popularity of Virtual Data Room systems in the described quarter was as big as 40%, which reassures the great importance of this solution on the domestic market. We are glad that FORDATA VDR system was used in many important investments. We helped our clients, among others, to finalize the purchase of a 100% stake in the Katowice 3S Group, the optical fiber manufacturer and telecommunications services provider, by Play Communications, and participated in the sale of the security segment of Konsalnet for the Seris Group. Our Data Room also helped in the process of taking over Prime Car Management shares by PKO Leasiing.
