ACCESS MERGERSTAT MONTHLY REVIEW >>

The FactSet Mergerstat Review is the cornerstone of every mergers and acquisitions library. This must-have publication delivers comprehensive rosters, data and statistics on merger and acquisition (M&A) transactions that involve U.S. companies, including privately held, publicly traded and cross–border transactions.  And, as always, the Review is the most reliable source for premiums by year and industry multiples.

Data for each annual edition is sourced from the prominent FactSet Mergers global mergers and acquisitions data – and all of it is verified by expert analysts. Financial professionals in every sector anchor their M&A research with the annual Review.

Back by popular demand, the 2020 Review once again includes the Industry Analysis chapter that was originally featured in all editions up to 2017. This section goes along with the FactSet Sectors – both of which are familiar tools for users to perform M&A analysis based on industry spotlights, multiples, premiums and cross-border activity. In addition, the original Transaction Roster is back with the 2020 edition. This is the Roster based on Mergerstat Industries that appeared last in the 2018 edition (and preceding editions).

Your purchase also includes the Mergerstat Monthly Review – a monthly update on M&A activities, trends and deal data by industry.
