MMPA 2022-12M Integrated Case Competition

A guide to company and industry research for MMPA 2022-12M students participating in the Integrated Case Competition

DEAL COMPS: BASICS

Deals are sometimes known as precedent transactions
 

For the purpose of your case competition, deals are typically mergers or acquisition and your research will likely focus on finding target (acquired) companies that are typically comparable to the target company of interest.  The transaction value (including the take-over premium) can then be used to help value a company under consideration as a target.
 

Use FactSet and Bloomberg to research a single deal or multiple deals involving public companies.  This guide will focus on FactSet but Bloomberg also offers the MA function for deal research.
