The periodical Mergers & Acquisitions has key M&A deals and news.
While articles about deals are in these subscription databases: Business Source Ultimate; ABI/Inform; Factiva - the charts about deals are not in a database. Print issues of this periodical (until 2015) are offsite at the Library Services Center. Factiva also has Mergers & Acquisitions Online, for website content of this journal; ProQuest Statistical Insight also has some tables - yet a significant delay.
The database Nexis Uni (formerly LexisNexis Academic) has selected M&A info. from Mergerstat M&A database (select "publication" and then in publication box type the source).
