MMPA 2024-12M Integrated Case Competition

A guide to company and industry research for MMPA 2024-12M students participating in the Integrated Case Competition


Deals are sometimes known as precedent transactions

For the purpose of your case competition, deals are typically mergers or acquisitions and your research will likely focus on finding target (acquired) companies that are 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 section of the guide will focus on FactSet but Bloomberg also offers the MA function for deal research.
