Have you ever wondered what the returns or deal multiples are for a certain sector, or what EBITDA margin or revenue CAGR you should include in your due diligence model? Whether you are evaluating opportunities, testing your investment theses, or making investment recommendations, you can sharpen your investment edge with DealEdge.

DealEdge Key Stats

Deal analysis like never before

Actionable data-driven intelligence is an increasingly important part of the modern private equity decision-making process. But when it comes to evaluating investment opportunities, investment professionals are too often forced to rely on anecdotal evidence or incomplete data.

That is where DealEdge comes in. It is a revolutionary platform that offers deal-level performance analytics, built for the specialized needs of the private equity industry. The depth of analysis represents a breakthrough for data-driven decision-making: it covers more than 20 outputs including IRRs, CAGRs, EBITDA margins, MOICs and value creation metrics, backed by directly reported cashflow data from more than 30,000 private equity deals.

EBITDA Margin Change

Streamline your due diligence

Evaluating potential investment opportunities can be a difficult and time-consuming process. With DealEdge, you can evaluate businesses more quickly, and be confident you are selecting the best opportunities.

With more than 560 industry subsectors in our custom-built taxonomy, you can drill down to look at the specific segments your opportunities are in and gauge the performance of similar deals in the past.

Examine risk metrics like loss rates and write-off rates to weigh the downside potential, and explore the growth rates and returns of winning deals to see the upside. Eliminate higher-risk and lower-reward opportunities with speed and certainty, and focus on the most attractive businesses.
