Testimonials & Awards  

  • The Deal wins SABEW’s Best-in-Business award in the international commentary category!
  • I think The Deal is a unique tool. It differentiates itself from other databases and deal services because The Deal delivers proprietary information, which you normally don’t get with other sources.
    Philipp HofstetterPresident, PwC Corporate Finance LLC
  • The Deal is my go to source for in-depth analysis on the drivers behind potential and existing M&A activity. The information provided through The Daily Deal and The Deal is both timely and relevant to me in navigating the ever-changing transaction landscape.
    John DohertySVP-Corporate Development, Verizon
  • I do recommend The Deal to colleagues who are not using the service because it is a fantastic source of customized news, information and proprietary analysis. When we have new junior folks coming into our group one of the first things we do is sit down with them and explain how they should try to be, to inform themselves about the industry in which we work, and we recommend is they subscribe to The Deal and The Deal’s newsletters.
