The value of the M&A market in Poland could grow by 25-30% in 2010, according to a report prepared by DealWatch and advisory firm KPMG. The growth in value is expected to be driven by the government's privatisation plans, which envision between PLN 25-30bn (up to EUR 7.75bn) in revenues this year. According to the report prepared by KPMG and DealWatch (an M&A service belonging to - alongside news agency ISB and IntelliNews - to the Euromoney Group), the number of M&A transactions in Poland and by Polish firms came to 556 in 2009. The value of those deals came to EUR 8.5bn, but the estimated theoretical value (which includes deals with unreported transaction value) could be as high as EUR 11.75bn. According to the report, M&A transactions in Poland and including Polish firms came to 33% of the CEE (excluding Russia, Belarus and Ukraine) and SEE M&A market value in terms of the total number of transactions and 34% in terms of total value. In 2010, Poland's share in the M&A activity in the region is expected to increase further. ISB, DW
