Customer Stories

"Equilar’s research team has been instrumental to providing impeccable analysis for critical transaction discussions and executive compensation-related decisions. The team of industry experts is highly capable with a broad understanding of M&A implications on compensation matters. The depth and breadth of expertise in severance/change in control, transaction bonuses and other special awards, to name a few, continue to be an incredibly valuable asset to our team."

“As consultants, clients expect us to know the best-available data tools and resources for informing their decisions, many that require a real-time response. Equilar is a trusted, long-term partner in our work.”

"If recruiters show me a candidate and I put that name into BoardEdge, I can see if the person is connected to our executives or board members, institutional investors or private equity investors. I use Equilar to make sure that I have as much information as I can on the candidates."

"When my sales team was looking at particular companies as new prospects, I immediately thought, ‘I’m going to see who we know over there.’ I ran my directors’ connections through BoardEdge to see if any of them are connected to any of those public companies. We could tap those connections. When you’re looking at a brand-new prospect, how do you get over that wall and make that connection? If you can make that sales call at the board level, that immediately gets sent up to management and you will likely get a call back. The prospect is now in play."
