Pratt's Stats now lists over 25,000 private-company M&A transactions&mdamdash;thanks to business brokers and other intermediaries who contribute the data. Individuals who send in the most transactions are inducted into the Pratt’s Stats Hall of Fame. For the second quarter of 2016, they are:
- Scott Perry, Gateway M&A (Carrollton, Texas);
- Neil Gerritsen, Alberta Business Sales Inc. (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada); and
- Ben Olsen, The DVS Group (Leawood, Kans.).
Our thanks to these individuals—and all the rest—who help BVR build Pratt’s Stats into the most reliable data source of its kind. We’d also like to point out that the database now includes secondary and tertiary SIC and NAICS codes, new dedicated purchase price allocation fields, and new search fields including sale region, whether a company was a franchise, and whether the purchase included real estate.
