What is Distressed Deal Data™?

DailyDAC’s Distressed Deal Data™ exists to provide subscribers with intelligence regarding “urgent” and “special” situations that should be of interest to them. Such situations include:

  • Companies that have taken (or failed to take) some action that is a forward indicator of potential distress, whether now or in the near future secured lenders exercising their rights against their collateral after borrower default
  • Government authorities seizing business property
  • Companies whose owners are experiencing some sort of problem unrelated to the company but which, nonetheless, is requiring a quick exit
  • Companies that need to dispose of excess or obsolete inventory

DailyDAC’s Distressed Deal Data™ does not just aggregate, it curates.

Every week, our researchers review hundreds of data sources. For each deal listed in Distressed Deal Data™, dozens (or more) are rejected.

We do this, in part, by scouring through:

  • Court dockets
  • Government filings
  • Public notices published in hundreds of newspapers and other periodicals

But what really sets DailyDAC’s Distressed Deal Data™ apart from services you may think of as our competitors is our proprietary, state-of-the-art search algorithms developed over more than a decade of doing what we do.

Rather than limiting our efforts on companies that are ‘in play,’ we look for forward-looking indicators of situations that our analysts conclude suggest, or will evolve into, the need to sell assets or take in investment on an exigent basis.

And the intelligence DailyDAC provides is not limited to public information and algorithms. We speak with industry insiders every day, and many attorneys, accountants, fiduciaries, investment bankers, and other advisors trust DailyDAC to help them to discretely disseminate information about their clients who urgently need a transaction to happen quickly. In addition, auctioneers constantly seek to list their deals with the DDD, though we are select in which deals we allow, in order to save our subscribers time.

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

  • Your subscription includes 24/7 access to the Distressed Deal Data™ Database (“DDDD”), our paywalled database, so that you can access new deals in real time, as they are added throughout each day of every week.
