Poland's M&A market may record a rebound in 2014, Joanna Korpus from the Warsaw School of Economics said at a conference on Tuesday.

Cautious optimism from the part of investors and economic growth in the US, the UK and the euro zone should contribute to growth on the global M&A market, Ms Korpus said. “After two years of stagnation, Poland should also observe a rebound on this market.”

Ms Korpus said that in the first half of 2013, there were 104 mergers and acquisitions recorded in Poland, which represents an 18.8 percent decline year-on-year. In the same period, the number of deals in Central and Eastern Europe was 659, 20.7 percent more than a year earlier. The countries with the most M&A deals in the CEE region were Bulgaria, Czech Republic as well as Turkey.

In 2012, the value of the M&A deals in Poland was $2.48 billion, a drop of 30 percent year-on-year. The sectors with most transactions were: banking, finance, industry, services, retail and wholesale.
