DealFlow Media has announced the acquisition of both the assets and business of PrivateRaise.com LLC, which tracks private placements of equity and equity-linked securities executed by public companies. The deal includes the PrivateRaise.com website.
DealFlow Media provides information and analysis on alternative investment structures, and this is the company's first major acquisition since it was founded in 2003. PrivateRaise's service simplifies monitoring, researching and analyzing private investments in public equities and those associated with those transactions (investors, placement agents, law firms).
This deal will effectively help DealFlow Media enhance the scope of its offerings. The company notes how the acquisition will enable DealFlow Media to become a viable database service provider and allow it to offer more premium services in other markets, such as insurance, equities, debt, and real estate investment structures.
The integration already appears to be moving forward at a fast pace. DealFlow has launched a new set of services on the PrivateRise platform. The new services include enhancements to PIPE tracking and new features that will analyze reverse mergers, shell vehicles and special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs). DealFlow Media has combined its own proprietary databases used in The SPAC Report and The Reverse Merger Report with the PrivateRaise platform to create a new level of service for investors, investment bankers and attorneys who specialize in such deal structures.
DealFlow Media plans to build out the PrivateRaise platform and launch new services. The company seems well on its way to accomplish those goals and more.
