DealReporter launches new equity, debt platform
Dubai/London, March 7, 2011
DealReporter, a provider of market-moving information on a wide range of liquidity events, has launched its enhanced Middle East service.
The expanded Middle East platform now provides in-depth coverage of a spectrum of actionable liquidity events in both equity and credit, as well as project and Islamic finance.
In addition to leveraging dealReporter’s well-established global expertise in covering mergers and acquisition transactions and chasing news on live and expected deals, the Dubai-based team of reporters generates vital intelligence on key special situations ranging from rights issues and private placements to dividend changes, significant business events and asset disposals. Corporate governance and shareholder activism, demergers and legal actions are central to this coverage area, as is their focus on convertible bond arbitrage.
The expansion of dealReporter Middle East’s debt capital market coverage tracks the development of the regional credit market and now encompasses both bond and sukuk issues, secondary market trading, as well as corporate refinancing and balance sheet restructuring. The addition of project finance intelligence complements this content set by providing financing updates on projects with a value of $1 billion or more.
The team also reports on the evolving regional regulatory environment, speaking to leading government and legal sources in the region to clarify the implications of new or proposed legislation.
“Our niche focus reduces the scope for information overload while at the same time ensuring our readers don’t miss essential updates on key regional situations,” dealReporter Middle East editor Victoria Robson said.
“We also benefit from access to dealReporter’s global network of journalists with whom we collaborate to provide market moving information on a variety of cross-border situations.”
dealReporter’s proprietary coverage is supported by a suite of tailored analytics generated by an in-house team and the rapid aggregation of English and Arabic language local publications from across the region.
“dealReporter Middle East will become the only platform in the region capable of providing proprietary news coverage for both the equity and credit markets,” dealReporter global editor in chief Yanita Morris added.-TradeArabia News Service
