      Historical Data from the Private Placement Monitor     - Delivered in Word - 


From 1990 the data is available in Word.

   For readers of the Private Placement Monitor  who need to search back issues there is an easier way.

      You can buy PPM  information, in a Word document, and download it directly onto your PC.

          The information would consist of exactly what you receive in the PPM newsletter. That means rumored, launched, priced and pulled deals. All updates, even people moves are included. Some graphs and charts are not included.

Historical data will be sent to you, via e-mail, as a Word attachment.

This allows you to keep the data in one large Word document, instead of many smaller documents.

Searches are easier because you don't have to go through separate newsletters looking for a particular name or data point. Also, you can copy and paste into other applications.



Historical data goes back to 1986.

From 2005 the data is available in Excel.
