Pratt’s Stats, including Public Stats, will cross a major milestone later this year–20,000 deals.   As always, each transaction:

  • is peer reviewed (thousands of analysts use these transactions each month)
  • has a link to the source SEC documents if a public filing was completed
  • has complete financial statement information (as compared to Done Deals, for instance)
  • includes all footnotes and explanatory notes
  • includes information on employment contracts and non-competes, and
  • gives users access to analysis using all of the major (and not so major) financial ratios

Pratt’s Stats covers transactions where the target company was private; Public Stats provides the same financial and valuation metrics for deals where the target company was public (including over 800 transactions where the public company was not based in North America). 

In fact, Pratt’s Stats just added 70 Canadian transactions to the database, many of which have direct links to the Sedar filings, bringing the total number of Canadian transactions to 405 (as of March 8, 2011). The median selling price of the Canadian transactions is about $7M, with the average selling price being about $111M. The total number of transactions in the database is 16,554 (as of March 8, 2011). These transactions are data rich and include up to 88 data points each. The data can be accessed via a one year subscription or by purchasing a single search.
