Description This paper monitors development trends at the global merger and acquisition (M&A) market and analyses the development of the Czech merger market in detail. The aim of this paper is to compare mergers implemented in 2010-2013 as regards the types of the Czech mergers, the legal forms of the participating companies, and their combinations. Attention is devoted to the changes in timing of mergers within the calendar year. The hypotheses were tested using the regression and correlation analyses as well as graphical analysis. The research results have confirmed a positive relation between the development of the Czech economic environment and activities at the merger market. It has been proved that traditional as well as newly implemented forms of mergers have increased and the range of combinations of legal forms of participating corporations has expanded.
