iDeals™ Solutions deal activity jumps 34 percent in 2nd Quarter 2010
August 06, 2010
While analyzing iDeals™ Solutions deal activity for the 2nd Quarter 2010, we identified a 34 percent increase from April to July 2010, which eclipsed the autumn peak market in November 2009.
Figures for July are up 35 percent compared to April which showed a 12 percent increase from January activities. These figures demonstrate significant increases in contrast to the appearance of a slower start for the year.
Most of iDeals™ Virtual Data Room user activity stems from the preparation or review of due diligence data and documents utilized in transactions. With many open data rooms and thousands of active users, user activity statistics indicate a heavy amount of deal interest.
Throughout the past several years, this activity has been influenced by seasonality where volume usually increases slightly during spring and autumn periods. An exception to this seasonality was in 4th quarter 2008 which showed a 30 percent decrease in activities compared to the previous summer months which was related to the stock market crash. M&A activity for July 2010 has now overshadowed the autumn peak from mid-November 2009.
iDeals™ Solutions allows M&A professionals and corporate management teams to develop an unlimited amount of virtual data rooms and documents. Although credit is scarce for many companies, with deals taking longer to come to fruition and closing deals not always guaranteed, it is important that diligence files are well-organized in advance to ensure the process does not undergo interruptions after the letter of intent is finalized. iDeals™ Solutions customers can enjoy the convenience and flexibility of keeping these files online for indefinite periods of time, in cases where negotiations are stalled and then resume again at a later date.
iDeals™ Solutions has been a provider of secure document management services to the investment, legal and life sciences sectors since 2008. Our flagship product is iDeals™ VDR, a next-generation application that is utilized by companies and leading advisors in over 30 countries around the world.
