  • More recent: over 6,000 from the last 5 years

With IBA Market Data, you have not only a large number of comparables across a large number of SIC / NACIS codes, but for the first time you will have access to the expanded data as well. Besides Price/Sales, Price/EBT, SIC, NAICS, Location, Annual Gross, Annual Earnings, Owner’s Comp, Sales Price, Business Description, sale date, and geographic area, there are fifteen asset fields (for one year) and sixteen income statement fields (for three years). The expanded data does not exist for every transaction, but there is a significant amount of expanded data and it’s growing every month.
