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 second consecutive peak in the history of the report, improving the record result from the previous quarter by 6 transactions.
While in 2020 FORDATA mainly served developers and owners of industrial and warehouse space in the Real Estate segment, the new trend was confirmed in the last quarter. The analysis of transactions made in the Virtual Data Room system shows that there has been an increase in the importance of investments covering residential projects as well as entire housing estates. Growing interest - also from foreign entities - is pushing up the prices of residential space per square meter. It also proves the increased awareness of the RE sector in the field of digital tools enabling the optimization of the sales process. Looking at the cross-sectional view, in the last quarter, up to 45% of entities used the VDR system in the M&A industry.
