MergerStat in Nexis Uni (formerly LexisNexis Academic)
Geography: Global
A reporting service that provides details on mergers, acquisitions and divestitures that are publicly announced. It 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.



For public companies involved in a merger/acquisition, the parties' SEC filings and Earnings Conference Calls,
leading up to and shortly after the event, can provide helpful insights about each party's motives.

In particular, pay attention to an SEC filing called the DEFM14A, if one exists.
(Caveat: A large company that's acquiring a small target might not release a DEFM14A.)
