How to Use the Distressed Deal Data™ Database

As a subscriber to DailyDAC’s Distressed Deal Data™ (“DDD”)™ you may access our deal intelligence in two ways:

The remainder of this document is a user guide for the DDDD

Click the Deal Title to View More Information

When you first view a deal in the Distressed Deal Data™ Database (“DDDD”) you will see a very short summary of that deal. To see more details you must click the title of that deal, which is hyperlinked to a page that contains additional information about that deal, including the actionable data.

Actionable Data

We use the term “actionable data” to refer to contact information for a human being who can provide you with more information about a particular deal, plus any other information our researchers have gathered and our analysts have written. We give you all the information we have on each deal, so you do not have to go hunting for it. Where there are relevant court documetns, for example, we include them.

The actionable data provided to DDD subscribers about any particular deal varies greatly depending on its Deal/Sale Type.
