Private Equity and Strategic Buyers Can Now Pinpoint Best Deal Opportunities From Expansive Target Company Watch Lists Using Navatar and PitchBook

Buyers managing watch lists containing tens of thousands of investment opportunities now have a better way to focus on the right target companies.

Navatar, the dealmakers’ mobile workflow platform, and PitchBook, the premier data provider for the private and public equity markets, have made it easier for dealmakers to focus on the best deal opportunities. Instead of researching all the targets to figure out where to focus, dealmakers can be notified when a target company falls into their suitable investment criteria.

Users can select targets from PitchBook’s comprehensive database, including research on nearly one million private companies, and monitor the targets that are most receptive to the firm’s marketing and business development outreach efforts through the Navatar platform. Dealmakers can be automatically notified when a target company opens a new office, hires a C-level executive or reports something significant.

Deal origination professionals can view the companies’ latest financials and other hard-to-find data, including deal history, valuation data, investors, executive team and news alongside their full relationship history with the target. Paired with proprietary Navatar tools and custom workflows, deal teams can accordingly optimize their monitoring and nurturing of watch list companies.

This deal origination strategy can be executed whether in office or working remotely. Navatar’s mobile platform allows buyers to stay on top of the pipeline, sign documents, delegate tasks and react to important prospect news from anywhere in the world. For instance, a buyer who receives a deal opportunity from an investment banker can instantly retrieve the intermediary’s complete relationship history with the firm, and evaluate the company’s financials through PitchBook, at the click of a button before responding.

In an upcoming webinar, Navatar and PitchBook will reveal how top buyers with few resources are able to manage watch lists containing thousands of opportunities in a way that allows their best leads to surface to the top. Those wishing to attend can register here:
