"Market disruption, credit crunch and forced restructuring inevitable"

Eurobuild CEE 10 July 2019
CEE REGION Central and Eastern Europe remains an attractive destination for industry and financial investors seeking takeover targets for expansion, according to law firm Wolf Theiss, which cohosted the 'CEE M&A Spotlight' meeting in London held on July 4th.
Due to its booming economy and growth prospects, the region has become of interest to large global private equity and sovereign wealth funds as well as Asian investors.

“Central and Eastern Europe continues to be perceived as a land of opportunities, despite demanding valuations and growing competition among investors,” said Lech Giliciński, the head of the restructuring and insolvency practice in Warsaw. “All across the region the market is seeing a steady flow of projects from a diverse base of investors including large private equity funds and sovereign wealth funds.”
However, heightened geopolitical risks and rising protectionism across the world is set to weigh on investor sentiment. In a recent survey by co-host Mergermarket, around 84 pct regarded Brexit and Eurozone uncertainty as one of the biggest uncertainties facing their CEE strategy while 70 pct believe that distressed debt opportunities in the CEE region will increase over 2019. “Despite the general upbeat outlook for the region, some market disruption, a credit crunch and the forced restructuring of companies are inevitable as global tensions raise the volatility of financial markets and fuel currency fluctuations,” added Lech Giliciński.
