The Deal launches M&A database

Published on .

New York—The Deal, a media company that publishes The Daily Deal, told BtoB that it has begun the “soft launch” of Deal Focus, a mergers and acquisitions database of transactions announced since Jan. 1, 1999.

The database, which will cover transactions with an announced value of $100 million or more, will be offered as a subscription service. Also included in a subscription to Deal Focus is Corporate Control Alert and full access to the TheDeal.com Web site.

The introduction of Deal Focus is one of a series of efforts by The Deal to build its subscription-based revenues. The Deal.com, for instance, began charging for content in October 2002.

“We’re comfortable with a 50-50 split,” said The Deal President-CEO Kevin Worth, referring to the ratio between subscription and advertising revenues.
