In 2021 and for the seventh year in a row, Mazars has been ranked among the top 5 leading deal advisors in Central & Eastern Europe, based on Mergermarket CEE Accountant League Table by number of successful deals.
Our highlights showcase a selection of projects that we advised on throughout the region.
Reflecting on the year, there are a few key themes that have directed and influenced Mazars’ transactional activity in CEE:
1. Inbound investments from strategic investors coming from the USA, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Netherlands, the Benelux and Scandinavia;
2. Increased number of transactions involving CEE buyers;
3. Strengthened interest of PE funds for the region;
4. Robust M&A activity in the following sectors: Technology, Industrials, Energy & Renewables, Healthcare & Pharmaceuticals, Real Estate, Construction and Telecommunications.
Mazars expects these themes to still influence the CEE deal activity in 2022. The perspectives for upcoming months are relatively positive: Central & Eastern Europe is well-positioned to benefit from the post Covid-19 period, with industrial nearshoring, succession planning, PE funds activity, the shift towards renewables and further market consolidation in selected sectors being the main drivers of that trend.
