Using a specific list of companies in Zephyr

Posted in Zephyr

Zephyr is a database containing information on: Mergers & Acquisitions, Initial Public Offerings Venture Capital transactions. The database covers transactions & deals worldwide. The database offers many search options. An important search option for looking up a list of preselected companies is "Identification numbers". The company identification numbers that can be used are:
- BVD ID Number
- Ticker symbol
- ISIN Number
.

 

 

The identification numbers that can usually be used in other databases as well are the Ticker symbols, and the ISIN numbers. After choosing the option "Identification numbers" you can use the button Load from disk (on the left side in your screen) to open a text or Excel file with a list of (one of) these codes. It is also possible to select whether the codes should match one or more of the company types: Acquirer and/or Target and/or Vendor.

 

 

NB: The BVD ID Number is a proprietary number of companies in online databases created by Bureau van Dijk.

The new Zephyr (Neo) website

Posted in Zephyr

 

Zephyr is a database containing information on: Mergers & Acquisitions, Initial Public Offerings Venture Capital transactions. The database covers transactions & deals worldwide. Every year about 100.000 new deals are added. During 2010 and the beginning of  2011 the new website has been developed for searching the database. It will replace the older website/interface sometime during 2011.

 


 

Zephyr offers two ways to search in the database: A quick deal search, and the Expert search. Both are still available but look very different from before:

 

Quick Deal search:  Old  versus New      


Expert Search: Old versus New

 

The expert search now looks exactly like the website for the database Amadeus. When you want more information on a specific company it is possible to click the name and move on to a short company report. From there it is possible to click a link to go to another database of Bureau van Dijk to get a more extensive report.
