HOW WE HELP YOU

Investment Banker

The Venue® platform allows investment bankers the freedom to monitor and control the circulation of sensitive documents to measure investor interest and maintain due diligence. Efficiency is one of our greatest strengths, with our easy-to-use platform to get you in and out and on to the next deal.

Fund Manager

The Venue solution was built for long-term document management, for multiple funds within private equity, venture capital, alternative investment and hedge funds. And along the way, our 24/7 support will help you maintain and organise your portfolio data for optimal efficiency.

CFO

The Venue solution was designed with CFOs in mind – speed and flexibility, combined with ease of use allows for greater efficiency for your in-house team and exploration of various financing options for your company in a secure environment.

IT Security Manager

The Venue virtual data room (VDR) was designed with security and compliance in mind, giving you the control to safeguard the integrity of your information. Built-in tracking mechanisms allow you to monitor user activity and access. Third-party audits include AT 101 reporting, virus and hacking protection, disaster recovery, system/infrastructure security, and user support. Enjoy the peace of mind afforded by the backing of Donnelley Financial Solutions’s experienced IT Governance team.

Legal Counsel

When sharing confidential information with a corporate client, you’ll need customised security features for setting user permissions against specific parties and tracking documents for highly-sensitive cases. And when time is of the essence during M&A transactions, corporate financing or restructuring, contact 24/7 support to help handle it.

M&A

When valuing assets, extensive documents need care and attention-to-detail. On the Venue platform, you can control the who, when, where and exactly what part of documents certain parties can see. Audit trail and reports help protect buyer anonymity and full disclosure.

IPO

When filing records, plans and prospectuses and preparing for the draft registration process, we offer a unique combination of an intuitive interface, with access to Donnelley Financial Solutions’s financial EDGAR®-filing services and compliance capabilities, with systems ready to handle new form types like DRS and DRS/A.

Restructuring

Given the importance of instilling confidence in investors during the restructuring process, an organised platform is essential. Control user permissions to filter and organise data against different audiences – investors, buyers, accountants, analysts and legal counsels – and let our 24/7 customer support team handle any user needs.

Fundraising

When attracting investors within private equity, hedge fund and venture capital, all documents must be organised and easy to access. The Venue platform is simple, sleek, easy to use, and it offers a centralised Q&A so you can answer investor questions easily and efficiently and monitor investor interest with 30-day user activity reports.

Investor Reporting

When you need to regularly distribute tax documents, audit financials or other operational information to inform investors and corporate personnel, the Venue platform offers efficient reporting solutions and complete mobile/tablet capabilities for when you are on the go.

IP Protection

Protect your ideas, designs and processes. You need to prevent infringement or misappropriation of patents, trademarks, copyrights, or trade secrets during clinical development processes or a tech IPO. The Venue solution is an industry leader in security – you can manage who is allowed to view documents and revoke rights even after download.

Healthcare/Life Science

When sharing intellectual property information and clinical trial results with licensing partners and regulatory agencies, you need to keep documents organised and safe. The Venue platform is equipped with systems-level encryption and virus security to avoid data leakage, and is designed for efficient organisation of phases and groups of documents.

Energy

We know energy companies need to manage and upload both large volumes of data and nonstandard data types for oil and gas. It’s why they use the Venue solution, which offers bulk file-handling capabilities and has the software to support the various data types needed within your specific industry. Whether your deal is upstream, midstream or downstream, our Venue virtual data rooms truly streamline the deal process so you can focus on your business.

Technology

At Donnelley Financial Solutions, we know firsthand that tech is fast paced, with constant innovations. When investors knock, you answer. We’ve got 24/7 project managers to help you make the changes you need at a moment’s notice. While executing these changes, put your next big idea or project in front of the right parties through Venue’s user permission settings.

Real Estate/Construction

We know real estate portfolios can include thousands of documents, used for property sales, re-financings, leasings and transactions. Construction projects require posting progress – drawings, plans, specifications and bid requests. With the Venue solution, you can organise, manage user permission settings and upload various file types for special projects. It’s a platform that adapts to your needs.

Telecom

In a global market, you need seamless sharing of information and communication. The Venue solution offers cross-border Q&A between owner and users, and maintains records of conversations. With 24/7 localised language support and far-reaching Donnelley Financial Solutions global services, we’re the only VDR that offers everything you need, anywhere you are.

Government

We know highly-sensitive government information requires the utmost security. As an industry leader in security, it’s our job to make sure top-level documents are kept top secret. Keep your information within national borders and receive localised support.
