GF Data®: Unique Data and Proprietary Relationships

 GF Data® provides data on private equity-sponsored M&A transactions with enterprise values between $10 and $250 million. Since its inception in 2006, GF Data® has come to be recognized as the most reliable source of data on valuation, leverage and volume trends in the middle-market  GF Data® collects transaction information from private equity groups on a blind and confidential basis and provides periodic reports based on this data to contributing private equity firms and paid subscribers  More than 200 private equity firms have provided information on more than 2,000 transactions closed since January 1, 2003  Each deal is categorized by its six-digit NAICS code, enabling GF Data® to provide highly detailed benchmarks in this tier of the market

How GF Data® Works

 Private equity groups provide transaction data through a proprietary on-line utility developed and operated by an independent technology application provider  Data delivery is encrypted to protect the data as it travels over the Internet from the private equity firm’s computer to the server  The data is released to GF Data® in batches large enough to prevent the identification of individual deals, or of individual firms based on their deal activity  GF Data® generates periodic reports based on this information and provides continuous access to detailed valuation data through an on-line, searchable database  The reports drill down to the greatest level of detail at which individual transactions remain disguised (e.g., there must be at least three deals in an industry subcategory for GF Data® to report at that subcategory level)
