How can we help?

Keep abreast of M&A market developments, emerging trends and acquisition opportunities. The service allows you to screen for precedent-setting transactions, benchmark company performance, and go beyond company-reported data for the objective, big-picture industry view.


Spend on M&A is near an all time high with deals pouring out of the US Lower 48 and activity spreading out across the globe. Greater transaction liquidity as well as access to capital markets is helping strengthen balance sheets and portfolios. Business development teams are back in the front line as companies look to position for longer term growth. Continued focus on cost reduction, capital discipline and portfolio high grading will most likely sustain a busy M&A market for quite some time.
