Merrill Corporation recognised as fintech leader at HKB International Business Awards

The company won in the Financial Technology category for its DatasiteOne platform.

On 27 August 2019, Merrill Corporation, a leading provider of technology for global mergers and acquisitions (M&A) professionals, was recognised by Hong Kong Business as a financial technology leader for its innovative DatasiteOne platform, which helps dealmakers simplify, streamline and accelerate the due diligence process.

The HKB International Business Awards recognises the most innovative projects and best practices amongst international businesses in Hong Kong.

“We have had tremendous growth in this market and are delighted to receive this recognition for our DatasiteOne platform, which is purpose built for speed, simplicity, and security in supporting corporate actions,” said Gary Judd, APAC Regional Product Director for Merrill Corporation. “Our team has worked hard to deliver a variety of features that have revolutionised the way professionals conduct M&A due diligence. Combined with our around-the-clock customer support and unrivalled multilingual project managers, our Hong Kong and Asia Pacific-based clients can be sure the right deal information is shared with the right people at the right time.”

Introduced to the market in March 2018, DatasiteOne is built on microservices architecture, which allows Merrill to release industry-leading enhancements in agile sprints so customers have what they need at their fingertips to streamline and accelerate the deal making process. Following subsequent releases in September 2018 and April 2019, Merrill introduced over 65 new features and enhancements to the platform, including the ability to bulk redact documents at the click of a button. The feature, which allows deal makers to easily control the process of ensuring confidential words, phrases and images are securely hidden from view, is a cost effective and time efficient way of redacting, a critical action that is used in at least 75% of deals.

Available in over 170 countries, Merrill’s DatasiteOne counts among its clients, 21 of the top 25 global legal firms, and 24 of the top 25 global financial advisory firms. Earlier this year, DatasiteOne was selected by Deloitte Tohmatsu Financial Advisory LLC (DTFA) to be part of DTFA’s mergers & acquisition (M&A) advisory solution. DatasiteOne has received multiple awards from the American Business Awards, including two Silver Stevie® Awards for “Collaboration/Social Networking Solution,” and “Content Management Solution,” and a Bronze Stevie® Award for “Cloud Application/Service.”

Merrill Corporation is a leading global SaaS provider for participants in the M&A lifecycle. The company’s platform, DatasiteOne, powers secure, intelligent due diligence and enterprise collaboration for thousands of deals in more than 170 countries. For more information, visit
