The Mergerstat database also includes more than 50,000 International transactions. Mergerstat covers U.S. transactions and cross border transactions involving a U.S. parent company where the equity value is greater than $1 million and represents at least a 10 percent interest.
The database covers mergers and acquisitions, stock swaps, recapitalizations, bankruptcy liquidations, asset sales and divestitures, leveraged buyouts, tender offers, spin and splitoffs, stake purchases, FDIC sales of failed banks, rumored and seeking buyer transactions. Coverage includes all corporate transactions involving at least 5% of the ownership of a company where the transaction was valued at $1 million or more (after 1992, deals of any value are covered) or where the value of the transaction was undisclosed. Public and private transactions are covered.
