    Our embedded visualization tool allows subscribers to instantly create and download graphical views of trends without needing to download thousands of deals.

  • Explore Scenarios

    Using the online tool, MAKB subscribers can filter deals and valuations down to a granular level. Users can choose from more than 650 industry segments, industry verticals, geographic regions, acquirer types (strategic vs private equity) or special ‘themes’ that identify SaaS or open source acquisition targets.
