Bureau van Dijk has announced the launch of global database as a business portal containing 20 million company profiles.  The service is part of the van Dijk MINT product line, which is designed for end-users and offers simplified search criteria.  One can search both individual and groups of companies as well as generating target lists of companies for marketing and business development projects.

 To augment its M&A database (450,000 companies) van Dijk has established a data collection team in Singapore to collect and translate data on M&A deals and translates them into English.  The M&A database is linked to major news sources such as the FT Newswires and newspapers, Dow Jones Newswires and Reuters.    Source: PASSWORD, Germany  www.password-online.de
