REGIONAL OVERVIEW

Austria, the Czech Republic and Poland continue to lead the pack in terms of regional dealmaking. Emerging markets Romania and Bulgaria are increasing in attractiveness due to sharp GDP growth and a rise in the ease of doing business. Competition for assets poses the single greatest challenge for dealmakers.
M&A OVERVIEW
While M&A activity in CEE slowed in 2017, the outlook for dealmaking is strengthening as economic growth continues and the financing climate improves. A total of 474 announced deals in the region with a total value of €25.5bn represents a 35% drop in value compared to the same period last year, with 55 fewer deals.
