Finding Recent Deals
I will provide a list of recent deals by stages (pending, completed, and terminated) at the beginning of the semester. I obtain this list from our Bloomberg terminal because of it's comprehensive, real-time data.
You can use some of our databases with remote access to begin looking for deals on your own. See guidance below for searching
Locate and analyze 20+ years of U.S. and international public company financial information, historical and current financial statements, stock prices, estimated earnings, deals, and analyst reports.
To search for Investext analysts reports: Choose "Research" from the menu choices on left side of the page. This will display the most recent Investext reports for the selected company. To perform a search within Investext, use the Advanced Research Page link found in the upper right hand corner of the Research webpage. This will allow you to search for reports by company, industry, country or keyword.
Beginning in the Search screen in Factiva, expand the blue arrow by Subject. In the search box by SUBJECT, begin typing the word mergers until a drop-down menu appears. There will be a blue arrow next to the word "Mergers."
Click on the arrow (not on the word). You will know you selected it correctly if you see the text ns=cmerg appear in the Free Text Search box at the top. [Alternatively, you can just type this in the search box.]
Next click on SEARCH and a results screen will appear with news on mergers.
