  • Intelligence gives us a broader perspective in terms of what we present to our clients. You don't want to be in a meeting and not have 'buyer x' on your list.

    Director, Mid-market advisor

  • Intelligence helps us compete against larger rivals. Even with all the hours of research we put in, we miss pitches because we don't know everything our international competitors do about specific sectors.

  • Intelligence immediately showed us 10 buyers from our list and many others we hadn't considered.

What type of work is Intelligence best for?

Intelligence excels at searching for potential buyers for a specific asset. For instance, it helps M&A advisors: 

  • Quickly build pitch decks with relevant buyer profiles; 
  • Identify new or non-obvious buyers during auction processes; 
  • Get alerts on relevant deal precedents that could impact the auction process and deal pricing.
How does Intelligence differ from other M&A search tools?

Intelligence’s search engine provides targeted buyer research. It is not designed for general M&A research purposes.

Intelligence’s search algorithms use statistical and natural language processing (NLP) methods to find and distill key data points into financial and strategic buyer lists and scores. Inputs include asset description and financials, similar deals, buyer acquisition history, buyer financial criteria, buyer financials, and geographic fit. In addition, the algorithm for our financial buyer score draws from anonymized and aggregated activity of financial buyers like private equity on Datasite. 

What data sources does Intelligence use?

Intelligence regularly adds to the data sources it uses. Current sources include Pitchbook, Coresignal, Datasite proprietary algorithms, anonymized and aggregated activity of financial buyers on Datasite, and publicly available information.
