It tracks more than 34,000 global transactions across more than 650 tech and telecom segments. In addition, by leveraging the insights of 451 Research analysts, it provides in-depth analysis and proprietary deal value estimates for key transactions involving some of the market's most disruptive technologies.

  • Proprietary and well-vetted estimates of deal values and trailing revenue numbers for key transactions, providing users with more valuation comps (see below) – and more leverage in negotiating deals. 
  • Proprietary analysis of key transactions, offering users deep insight on the rationales driving these often-disruptive deals and insight on where we are likely to see additional related M&A activity. See some examples

More Valuation Comparables

Buyers and sellers are disclosing transaction values for fewer acquisitions, making it increasingly difficult to obtain the valuation comparables that are an important part of the process of valuing a company.  To help fill the missing comps gap, our entire analyst team works hard to dig up – and verify – deal values and trailing revenue estimates for hundreds of key transactions. As illustrated below, our proprietary estimates add significantly to the number of comps available to M&A professionals – doubling the number of these data points for many segments of emerging technology.
