Click on each item label or financial value to access the definition and calculation and drill down to the source data and see both the formulae used and the data points. You can easily export reports into Excel for further analysis.

Instant comparable companies and deals

M&A Research Catalyst instantly generates a financial profile of comparable companies and deals to your subject company. You can modify these deals and even create your own lists.

 

Get quick company valuations – that you can fine tune

M&A Research Catalyst delivers company valuations and multiples via three approaches – comparable companies, comparable deals and a DCF valuation. Comparable deal and company valuations are created from the median value of the comparables in the report. The median is based on 10 comparable companies and 50 comparable deals.
