Everyone needs access to public and private comps when doing valuations. But there has never been a single resource available that provides all the detailed public and private financial data you need to accurately assess the value of a company. And the time analysts lose hunting that data down across different research tools and then scrubbing it in Excel is significant.
That’s why we’ve spent the past two years building out PitchBook’s valuations workflow capabilities—from better screening and search tools to adding a comprehensive dataset of public comps and in-depth equity research—so you can spend less time building spreadsheets and more time finding your next big opportunity.
Here’s how it works.
Discover new private and public comps easily
Quickly filter private and public comp searches by even more detailed metrics, including consensus estimates and forward earnings. Segment data further by trailing 12 months or calendar year.
Then effortlessly pull your comps list into either a prebuilt or your own custom Excel model. You can easily save searches, add companies to a list and share lists with colleagues as well.
Audit financial data faster
Drill down on any financial metric in a single click to see how it’s calculated and access a direct link to the source document where the information was pulled.
