TheStreet, Inc. a digital financial media company, announced that it has completed the acquisition of The Deal LLC from Wasserstein & Co. Founded in 1999 as The Daily Deal print newspaper, The Deal LLC transformed its business into a digital subscription platform that delivers coverage of the deal economy, primarily through The Deal Pipeline, a leading provider of transactional information and services. The Deal Pipeline was created for organizations seeking to generate deal flow, improve client intelligence and enhance market knowledge. It provides full access to 100-plus pieces of proprietary commentary, analysis and data produced every day by The Deal's editors and journalists and can be customized based on each client's job function, deal focus, and workflow.
The acquisition of The Deal will advance the strategic objectives of TheStreet by increasing both subscribers and content. The Deal's marquis customer base of 40,000 professionals, including senior-level bankers, law firm partners, private equity partners and hedge fund notables provides substantial predictable recurring revenue with high renewals and attractive margins and has continued to grow despite the deep cyclical downturn in the M&A market.
