Marcin Bielicki


The aim of the paper is to examine impact of the economic situation on the M&A on Polish capital market. The event study method is used to identify the difference in value creating in transaction on bear and bull market. Based on these results, it was found that in both cases gain mostly shareholders of the acquired companies, which is consistent with previous domestic and foreign research. In addition, it was noted that during downturns in case of a company being a target of a takeover there is a significantly higher abnormal rate of return. It could be caused by behavioral factors.
