BVWire–UKIssue #24-2
March 16, 2021

The 2021 edition of Mergerstat Review is now available for preorder; the guide will be available in PDF format in mid-April, and the print version will be available in May. The subscription includes all 2020 deals and monthly updates on new transactions during 2021.

Mergerstat Review, published by BVR, summarises and ranks all of the top private and listed company transactions in the UK, cross-border, and globally each year. Rankings cover all industries and provide essential deal financial data. Data on M&A announcements and purchase prices are presented annually and quarterly, for the current period and historically, including details on individual deals and trends in prices, methods of payment, multiples, and premiums.

Financial analysts have used Mergerstat Review for years to support their valuations.

This year’s update adds a new feature based on the current proliferation of special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) during 2020. SPAC transactions are now included. (A SPAC is a shell company that raises capital in an IPO and then acquires an operating company to form a new merged entity.)
