Thomson Reuters Corporation : Thomson Reuters M&A Database Surpasses One Million Deals Globally

Fueled by a record-breaking year, M&A database offers largest collection of
deal making activity in the world

NEW YORK,
January 27, 2016
- Thomson Reuters has recorded the one millionth deal in its industry-leading
Mergers&Acquisitions database, which covers changes in economic ownership of
businesses worldwide, from minority stake purchases through 100 percent
takeovers.

Thomson Reuters Mergers&Acquisitions database, part of the Thomson Reuters
Deals solution which can be accessed via Eikon, is used across the world by
more than 3,000 investment banks, law firms, hedge funds, educational
institutions and corporations to monitor and report on transaction activity,
perform market share analysis, and identify new business and investment
opportunities.

The Thomson Reuters database is the only one of its kind to offer 35+ years of
historical data, dating back to the 1970s. In 2015 it tracked over 43,000
deals, marking an all-time high for any single year of global M&A activity.

"For over 30 years, our dedicated operations and contributor relations teams
have worked hard to ensure we capture as many M&A deals possible across the
world. They examine thousands of sources to try to capture every single deal
- from smaller, undisclosed value transactions to eye-popping multi-billion
dollar deals," saidDebra Walton, chief product and content officer,
Financial&Risk
at Thomson Reuters. "From our rigorous valuation methodologies to our closely
followed League Table rankings, Thomson Reuters offers premiere M&A content
."

"We are delighted to reach such a significant milestone for our Deals
database, which is an industry leader in keeping up with the needs of bankers
and investment managers covering diverse deal types and geographies,"
saidRanjit Tinaikar, managing director, Global Advisory and Investment
Management
at Thomson Reuters. "It is particularly fitting that we've crossed the
millionth-deal threshold just as we witnessed a record-breaking $4.7 trillion
dollars in announced deals in 2015 across developed and key fast-growing
emerging markets - and the database has likely never seen greater study or
interest across the global financial spectrum."

Thomson Reuters Deals content serves tens of thousands of users across the
company's product portfolio - including the next-generation search and League
Table views in Thomson Reuters Eikon. Thomson Reuters M&A content covers over
one million deals, including 300,000+ US-target and 700,000+ non-US-target
transactions since the 1970s.
