Business News has created a comprehensive database of corporate transaction activity in Western Australia. This rich source of transaction data and news coverage covers Equity Capital Market (capital raisings) across the full spectrum of WA listed companies, from junior explorers through to major industrial and mining giants. It also includes details of Merger and Acquisition transactions covering a three-year period. Business News IQ allows you to explore not only the details of company transactions, but the corporate advisers, lawyers, accountants and public relations firms associated with these transactions. The information is gathered from sources including company annual reports, the ASX, ASIC and directly from the companies listed.
