Abstract

Corporate growth often takes a form of mergers and acquisitions (M&A). It is quite well known that mergers and acquisitions come in waves - so far, six waves have been researched. The fifth and sixth were observed not only in developed, but also in emerging countries. Central and Eastern Europe’s share of the global M&A market is negligible; however, during the recent years, emerging European countries have been very eager to take part in M&A projects. The main aim of the paper is to analyse the activity of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) countries on the M&A market.
