What’s new in PitchBook this month: More search and download options for people, companies, debt and LPs
January 29, 2016
Last month, we launched our interactive timeline feature to help you visually assess key financing events and employ count changes on public and private company profiles. Along with the timelines, we also released a few new search and download options for our expanding datasets on people, companies, debt and LPs. Whether you're looking to research the role gender plays in the PE/VC industry, search for companies by their active ownership status or download debt terms and LP commitment details, we think you’ll find this quite useful.
New Gender Criteria on People Search
To make it easier to search by gender in the PitchBook Platform, we added a new section for gender on our advanced people search. This was a frequently requested search option from our clients (thank you!), and we’re excited to deliver on this as more research and discussion emerges on this topic in VC, tech and beyond.
To help you easily search for companies by their current ownership status, we’ve made this status the first option on our Companies & Deals advanced search. The ownership status field is based on these categories:
Privately held (backing): Any company that currently has any level of financial backing (includes angel and seed)
Privately held (no backing): Any company that currently has no financial backing
In IPO registration: Any company that is currently in IPO registration
Publicly held: Any company that is currently publicly listed
Acquired/Merged: Any company that has been through an acquisition or merger
Acquired/Merged (Operating Subsidiary): Any company that is currently doing business as an operating subsidiary.
Out of business: Any company that is currently out of business
