PitchBook Review: "Best When Serious About Acquiring!"

We are always watching for companies to acquire. I’ve used PitchBook at another company for the same primary reason. The secondary benefits are tremendous, as there is much to be learned about bankable market trends based on what decisions PE, VC, and fund managers are making (putting real makers behind new deals)

For us, we value PitchBook for the quality of the data, and seek to approach the right acquisitions based on data that would be far too time consuming to capture on our own.
  • Extremely well-researched data, critical to any M&A decision.
  • Customer support: real humans respond, and follow-up diligently.
  • High trust resource: provides private company information too, which is far more valuable/ harder to access than public.
  • The price could be lower. If you’re serious about investing, then the Price is not a hurdle. But if you want to watch market cash trends, there are other great choices at lower costs.
Best uses are M+A, fund managers, PE companies and VCs. The quality of both their data and their researchers/support teams is excellent! Also, an excellent strategy advisory tool for startups, even if it is a bit pricey.

We used PitchBook for about 1 year, mostly on researching investment history to target Angels and VCs and comparable market valuations.
  • Data set of investments and acquisitions.
  • Contact information and key personnel.
  • Industry reports.
  • Expensive for small firms.
  • A good percentage of contacts bounce, so we need to use separate email list verification tools.
  • Most relevant searches were completed early on, not much use for us in ongoing work.
Well suited for larger enterprises and later stage investors, and those looking into companies at the Series A to B and beyond with more data in the system. It's less helpful at the seed stage.

The group I was in specialized in private capital markets and private placements, and needed a specialized source for accessing the latest available data on transactions in the market. PitchBook was used by my group as well as by other groups firmwide.

PitchBook helped us address the following problems:
-Limited sources of reliable information for private capital markets data
-Easily exportable datasets for use in custom analysis related to private capital markets activity
-Research on prospective investors based on investment history for purposes of investor targeting and transaction marketing
  • Voluminous and detailed datasets: PitchBook was a consistently reliable source of information on the most recent private capital markets transactions, as well as the key investors participating in said transactions.
  • Ease of use: PitchBook allowed for easy exporting of screens in Excel for use in our own analyses with minimal friction, and a robust interface ensured a sufficient level of granularity for conducting research.
  • Customer support: PitchBook customer support was extremely helpful and was frequently able to provide answers to any questions that arose.
  • Missing functionality: At times the ability to drill down further by transaction type and/or security was not available, and necessitated further data manipulation in Excel to arrive at the desired result.
PitchBook is well suited for any group/firm interested in private equity, particularly those looking to market private placements as well as track overall levels of activity in the private capital markets. It appears they've since added further functionality around private-equity specific interests such as limited partners, fund performance, etc. PitchBook is less useful for tracking standard market data such as pricing publicly-traded securities or tracking M&A transactions, as more robust alternatives exist.
