League Table and Submissions Information

Scroll down for recent league tables, upcoming deadlines and details about how to submit and what we include

Notes for submitters

  1. Information submitted before the quarterly deadlines will be eligible for inclusion in our league tables of advisers on global M&A transactions.  These will rank the top advisers globally, regionally and locally according to the volume and value of deals announced  since the beginning of the year which they have advised on.
  2. Deals announced after the deadline can be submitted individually as they are announced.  They will be included in our league tables up to the date of publication where possible.
  3. Our published league tables are based on global transactions of over US$5m.  If the financial details cannot be disclosed for a particular transaction, please confirm that the deal value is more than US$5m.
  4. Where the stake transfer is below 30% the minimum deal value for inclusion increases to US$100m. (We also track minority stake deals (deal value: US$5m – US$99m, stake size: 10% – 29%) for Asia-Pacific targets in our database. However, these deals are currently not collated in our global press releases.)
  5. For our  full criteria, please refer to the following link: Mergermarket M&A deal database criteria.
  6. If you are sending a list, please let us know if it is your firm’s comprehensive global list, or covers your region only.
  7. Please use Excel for lists where possible and note that we cannot accept pdfs.

How to stay up to date

To be notified when our global league tables are released and our submissions deadlines are announced, and to receive quarterly deal lists for checking, please submit your details using the form on the right.

If you have arrived at this page via an e-mail from one of our Research Relationship Managers, you will already be on our mailing lists and do not need to register again.

We avoid excessive mailings: tables and reminders are sent out once a quarter and at other times we will only contact you if we have a specific query regarding information you have submitted.
