What is Mergr?

Mergr (pronounced 'merger') is an interconnected Private Equity and M&A Database.

Every day, we research and identify change of control transactions and late-stage financings, connect the Private Equity Firms and Companies involved, and publish the data in an easy-to-use database. 

What data do we have?

Mergr is a database of,

  • Private Equity Firms

  • Companies that have engaged in M&A

  • M&A Advisors (Law Firms and Investment Banks)

  • Transactions

  • M&A Contacts (Professionals from PE Firms and Advisors)

  • M&A Press Announcements


  • Mergr is not a database of venture capital firms, startups, limited partners, specific funds (or fund returns), or corporate venture arms.

  • We only include companies that have engaged in M&A (either as Buyer, Seller, or Target). While this greatly limits the universe of companies in the Mergr database, it helps limit the 'noise' of irrelevant results.

What makes Mergr different from other databases?

  1. We are only focused on researching and collecting established company financings and M&A - both through investors, as well as companies.

  2. We do all our research manually and in-house. We do not license or purchase our information.

  3. The Mergr database has been deliberately constructed with simplified parameters and criteria, making our search tools straightforward and easy to use.
