StarMine Mergers and Acquisition Target Model

An overview of StarMine Mergers and Acquisition Target Model

The StarMine Mergers and Acquisition Target Model (M&A Target) provides a measurement of the likelihood of a public company to be acquired by analysing textual and fundamental content about the company. The model provides a 12-month indicator of the future probability of being acquired from tens of thousands of global public companies.

The model consists of two components – a text component and a fundamental component. The text component follows a bottom-up approach – starting with Reuters News documents, calculating document scores using the BERT-RNA model and aggregating document level scores to a company level score. The fundamental component uses structured data from fundamentals, deals, shareholder activism, pricing and corporate actions to generate a company score. The model combines outputs of both components to generate a final M&A Target Score.
