The second quarter of 2021 showed that despite the 15-month restrictions in the economy, the dynamics of the mergers and acquisitions market in Poland increased significantly - in the past period we recorded as many as 82 M&A transactions. This is the highest number in the history of the report, improving the high result from the previous quarter by 6 transactions. What was the M&A market like in this time rich in investments?
With the development of the pandemic, the interest of entrepreneurs in the subject of cybersecurity has increased, mainly due to the greater percentage of people working remotely, and thus - the increased risk of a hacker attack. It is also influenced by organizational challenges and increased circulation of online documentation between business partners and customers, forced by restrictions and changing trends. Digital tools ensuring information security are used more widely both in everyday activities and in strategic processes. In the reported quarter, 41% of M&A transactions used the Virtual Data Room tool to carry out such a process.
