Mergers & Acquisitions

Introduction to M&A and the databases that Bruno Library has to give you more information

Guide Contents

This guide will give you an introduction to the world of Mergers & Acquisitions.  It will provide resources that are available in the library for you to use as a student/faculty member of the University of Alabama.

Most M&A information comes from databases that are very expensive.  So, take advantage of the data while you have access to it.

***There are many differences in inclusion and valuation criteria between the vendors (in other words, what is/isn't a deal and what is the value).  If you are doing anything more than an anecdotal search for deals, CONTACT ME***
