Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) – overview of 2017 and expectations for 2018


We had a successful year with mergers and acquisitions in 2017. The transactions that were started in 2016 have been finalised. Other companies´ owners have newly turned to us, who are standing on the imaginary crossroads and thinking about next strategies in their companies.

It is clear from its beginning that the market is moving forward and the number of people interested in the services connected with M&A activities in 2017 has increased enormously. Thanks to this trend, ACG (Moore Stephens s.r.o. is a partner of ACG) has almost 10 new active mandates available, mostly exclusive ones, either for representing the companies with their sales or in connection with interest to the purchase another company.
