The database details key deal information, such as deal summary, deal rationale, deal financials, parties involved, advisors, and deal payment modes.

By tracking the proportion of various types of deals in each sector we can gauge which sectors are seeing growth and where others are struggling.

The highest value equity offering announced in 2021 (where the deal value was known), is the private placement of shares by Petrofac.

The deal is set to be worth $138m.

The database states that the rationale behind this deal was as follows: "The company intends to use the proceeds from the offering to repay existing indebtedness and to pay $106m penalty imposed in relation to the SFO investigation."
