The BIZCOMPS database contains financial details on more than 13,061 "main street" business transactions. Search the database by specifying any of the following variables:

  • SIC (Standard Industry Classification) code and/or NAICS (North American Industry Classification System) code
  • Keywords
  • Annual gross revenue
  • Sale date and sale price
  • Business location

BIZCOMPS subscribers get access to all financial details including annual gross revenue, asset figures, operating ratios, price and terms of sale. Sale price/gross revenue and sale price/seller's discretionary earnings are also calculated for each transaction reported. In addition to calculating arithmetic means and medians, results also provide the harmonic mean, a better measure of central tendency that gives equal weight to each data point in ratios where price is the numerator. You can effortlessly export the data to a Microsoft Excel© spreadsheet, print the individual transaction reports, or recalculate the summary financial statistics.
