Information Sharing in M&A transaction in CEE

March 2019

Strong economic performance and a generally sparkling M&A market describe the Central and Eastern European landscape these days. Market researchers see steady growth year on year in M&A activities and so our findings show in the latest CMS European M&A Outlook and Emerging Europe M&A reports.

In such environment the importance of competition law and especially compliant information sharing practices in transactions moves to the next level. Not all transactions reach closing, however data shared during due diligence and negotiations may influence parties in future strategic decision making in a way that is not allowed by competition laws. Transactional parties therefore may need to well consider what type of information is shared during the course of a transaction, how, when and with whom.

In our current guide CMS aims to shed some light on these often neglected elements and provide general guidelines and legislation specific know-how covering ten Central and Eastern European countries (Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey and Ukraine).

The publication does not constitute legal advice. All legal matters must be decided on a case-by-case basis, in light of all circumstances and subject to thorough legal assessment under local law.

For detailed legal advice, please contact our experts in the relevant jurisdictions.
