Bureau Van Dijk's Zephyr and Orbis

Zephyr is an information solution containing M&A, IPO, private equity, venture capital deals and rumors. No other M&A product adds more deals per year or links to such an extensive source of company information. Zephyr is updated hourly.

Orbis combines information from regulatory and other sources and delivers company information with added value, serving as a powerful comparable data resource on private companies. Use Orbis to find, analyze and compare companies worldwide.

These are available through Wharton Research Data Services.
