The steep drop in share prices of recently-listed European companies is making them prime targets for buyout firms on the prowl for cheap assets.

Polish parcel-locker operator InPost SA, U.K. online shopping emporium THG Plc and German enterprise software developer SUSE SA have been reported to attract private equity suitors in recent weeks. All three listed on European exchanges over the past 18 months and are now trading below their initial public offering prices.
