SNL Financial begins communications and media sector.

Following its recent acquisition of the assets of Kagan Research LLC (see accompanying article), SNL Financial of Charlottesville, Virginia, has launched SNL Media & Communications. The new division will provide "full-scale coverage" of the telecom, wireless, cable, satellite, broadcasting, entertainment, publishing, advertising, and new media industries.

Those are the same areas covered by Kagan's publications and research services, but NL/NL was unable to confirm whether the acquisition and the launch are related.

SNL Media & Communications is the company's 4th "vertical market," joining financial institutions, real estate, and energy.

"The lack of a consolidated electronic information source in the media and communications field presented a gap we felt SNL could fill with our trademark level of depth and accessibility," said Dan Seideman, SNL group director. "We've integrated all relevant information into a single, accurate database that's available online and updated around the clock."

SNL Media & Communications coverage includes more than 260 companies spread across the sector and provides data and metrics unique to each sub-industry, such as subscriber counts, churn rates, revenue per user, advertising revenue splits, EBITDA, free cash flow, and leverage statistics.

Additional content includes comprehensive M & A data, capital offerings, conference call transcripts, investor presentations, and institutional ownership. Users can also access asset-level and regulatory data such as Wireless License ownership with mapping and demographics; and ARMIS or Local Phone Regulatory Financials sourced from the FCC.
