Characteristics of domestic mergers and aquisitions in Poland, in the years 2005-2014

Piotr Luty


In May 2004, Poland became a member of the European Union. Characteristics of mergers and acquisitions in Poland are presented for the years 2005–2014. Two research hypotheses are formulated: one assuming a correlation between mergers and acquisitions of assets and that of ownership titles; the other – assuming a trend for company mergers and acquisitions to favour entities representing the same sector of economy. Both hypotheses were found to be true based on the results of the research. The correlation strength between the number of mergers and acquisitions was found at 0.9, and the companies actively involved in M&A were found to typically follow the sector affiliation when choosing their M&A targets.
