Don’t go blind into a negotiation. Arm yourself with a solid understanding of the content landscape, so you can squeeze as much value as possible out of your sale.
If you wanted to sell your house, you’d look for real-estate comps in your neighborhood.
But until now, comps didn’t exist for private, small-to-middle market business sales.
Finding them on your own is time-consuming at best, and frankly, often impossible. That’s why our research analysts and reporters have collected this information by hand, scouring the internet for useful metrics and conducting first-person interviews with founders.
Information we dig up for each company* that sold:
*Most of the companies we cover are private, and some details are unavailable because of NDAs. While we can’t provide every data point for every deal, we can promise to arm you with information and decision-making power you wouldn’t have otherwise.
Our data is also used by M&A professionals, individuals in the search community and investors.
You know good data is key for making decisions — and it can be hard to find in the private market.
That’s why we’ve compiled these comps through research and first-person interviews. This is truly data you won’t find anywhere else.
Our report will help you:
Whether you want to buy and leverage a media company or build a career in the M&A space, our data will help you make solid business decisions.

Yes, I paid for the @TheyGotAcquired media company exits report, but the info enclosed was ⭐️priceless⭐️. As a relatively new media operator aggressively seeking profitability, exit stories are always on the mind… but are always so hidden. Thank you, @alexisgrant and team!
