What are the differences between the Factset Mergerstat/BVR Control Premium Study and the Mergerstat Review? Do you need both?

Yes, there are advantages for any firm to owning both publications because there is little overlap. The Mergerstat Review covers a much broader spectrum of overall M&A market & industry statistics and analysis plus details of the underlying transactions, whereas the Factset Mergerstat® / BVR Control Premium Study™ focuses on transactions where a controlling interest is being exchanged and the associated control premiums.

*Review note - for the Review, there is the premium you pay for the right to control an entity but there is also the premium you may have to pay over the current share price to get the piece of the company you want to own. The moment your demand for the shares is realized in the market - the price of those shares are going to adjust (usually up in price) - almost as quickly as you can buy (especially if you are looking for a large piece). That differential between the share price (unaffected by your demand) and what you may actually have to pay to get the share is the "premium". It may be zero, negative, a small amount or a considerable amount depending on the market's reaction to your demand.
