TMT M&A, financial and regulatory risks for Central and East Europe assessed at Warsaw conference

The latest risk protection strategies for investing into telecom, media and technology businesses in Central and Eastern Europe will be assessed at the TMT Finance & Investment CEE 2014 Conference ( in Warsaw on September 30.

Clifford Chance, one of the world’s leading law firms, will host a session for senior industry, government and finance executives titled “Protection of investments in the TMT sector” at the event which brings together over 150 key players from across the region and features 20 sessions on investment opportunities.

Three key areas of risk in the TMT sector have been identified according to new market research conducted on behalf of Clifford Chance.

Bartosz Krużewski, Partner, Clifford Chance, who will chair the round table discussion, focusing on how investors and governments can help protect shareholdings, as well as the security regulations and best practices commented, "In this context it is only too natural that a conference dedicated to TMT Finance & Investment in the CEE region should address those concerns. At the roundtable on Protection of investments in the TMT sector that I will chair I will be joined by experts from the sector who will not only share their valuable insights but also discuss how these risks can be mitigated."

He went on to add, “In the survey that The Economist Intelligence Unit carried out on behalf of Clifford Chance in the first half of 2014 the top three risks that TMT board members identified are financial risk, legal/regulatory risk in connection with M&A and compliance, and reputation risk. Also boards of TMT companies surveyed showed a higher level of concern over legal and regulatory risk than boards operating in other sectors”.

Over 70 speakers have been announced for the event with Marek Szydlowski, General Counsel TVN Group, TVN and Tom Ruhan, Chairman of the board of directors of ECTA & general counsel of Netia 2003-2014 also providing insight on the ‘Protection of investments in the TMT sector’.
