Core Features & Benefits
- Proprietary and well-vetted estimates of deal values and trailing revenue numbers for key private transactions, providing users up to twice as many valuation comparables as other databases (see below) – and thus more leverage in negotiating deals.
- Ability to search for deals via a granular 650-node industry taxonomy, enabling more precise and relevant retrieval of valuation comparables.
- Proprietary analysis of key transactions, offering users deep insight on the rationales driving these often-disruptive deals and on which buyers and sellers are likely to see additional related M&A activity.
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.
