The launch of M&A Research Catalyst will provide customers with a rich perspective of a company alongside the ability to build more efficient lists of potential targets and acquirers.
New York, NY (PRWEB) July 15, 2015
Bureau van Dijk (BvD), the leading provider of business information, is launching a new solution that streamlines M&A research.
M&A Research Catalyst delivers clear and easy-to-interpret reports specifically created for M&A professionals. They combine information on companies, comparable deals and valuations alongside an interface that helps identify targets or acquirers, and value companies. The solution is currently being released to BvD’s existing client base.
M&A Research Catalyst brings BvD’s company information from its Orbis database, and deal level information from the company’s Zephyr solution together, to provide detailed and analytical research on a subject company in one easy-to-use platform.
Users benefit from automatically generated reports that provide a comprehensive financial profile of the subject company and key financials of similar companies plus relevant industry deals. The reports also include a high-level valuation through three approaches – comparable companies, comparable deals and a DCF valuation. Users can redefine the DCF based on their own knowledge of the subject company and industry by editing an array of default options such as the risk free rate, risk premium and raw beta.
Lisa Wright, Zephyr director said, “The launch of M&A Research Catalyst will provide customers with a rich perspective of a company alongside the ability to build more efficient lists of potential targets and acquirers. This will help users quickly identify new opportunities by region, size and industry and provide them with the M&A focused information they need. Data contained within the reports is transparent with each item label and financial value clickable allowing access to the definition and calculation.”
BvD will be offering a free trial of the new M&A Research Catalyst for those who want to see how their M&A practices can be improved first hand. Email bvd(at)bvdinfo(dot)com to register your interest.
