Hi @flammers ,

The Screener app can be used to extract M&A League tables. You may check this article for more detail: Find Your Right Companies with SCREENER | Eikon Data APIs(Python)

The screenshot below is an example of filtering universe: Deals, Asset Class: M&A, and Date announced: Last Month (you may add any other filters you'd like to)

from the Screener app, here's the Eikon Excel @TR formula

=@TR("SCREEN(U(IN(DEALS)/*UNV:DEALSMNA*/),  relativedate(TR.MnAAnnDate,LM)/*dt:Date*/, CURN=USD)","TR.MnASDCDealNumber;TR.MnARankDate;TR.MnARankValueIncNetDebt(Curn=USD,Scale=6);TR.MnATarget;TR.MnATargetPermId;TR.MnATargetMacroInd;TR.MnATargetMidInd;T"&"R.MnATargetNation;TR.MnAAcquiror;TR.MnAAcquirorPermId;TR.MnAAcquirorMacroInd;TR.MnAAcquirorMidInd;TR.MnAAcquirorNation;TR.MnATargetFinAdvisor(Concat='|');TR.MnAAcquirorFinAdvisor(Concat='|');TR.MnAAnnDate","CH=Fd")

From that, it can be transformed to Python code as

import eikon as ek
ek.set_app_key('#### YOUR EIKON APP KEY ####')

df,err = ek.get_data("SCREEN(U(IN(DEALS)/*UNV:DEALSMNA*/),  relativedate(TR.MnAAnnDate,LM)/*dt:Date*/, CURN=USD)"
                     ,["TR.MnASDCDealNumber","TR.MnARankDate","TR.MnARankValueIncNetDebt(Curn=USD,Scale=6)"
                       ,"TR.MnATarget","TR.MnATargetPermId","TR.MnATargetMacroInd","TR.MnATargetMidInd"
                       ,"TR.MnATargetNation","TR.MnAAcquiror","TR.MnAAcquirorPermId","TR.MnAAcquirorMacroInd"
                       ,"TR.MnAAcquirorMidInd","TR.MnAAcquirorNation","TR.MnATargetFinAdvisor(Concat='|')"
                       ,"TR.MnAAcquirorFinAdvisor(Concat='|')","TR.MnAAnnDate"])
display(df)

Thank @raksina.samasiri for your answer.

Is there a quick & dirty way to extract the LT that are already predefined in the LT app? For example, the LT for the year 2018 would be the following, according to the LT app:

lt.jpg

Or do I have to manually rebuild this LT using the SCREENER? And if so: I assume the filter option "AF01 Worldwide Completed Financial" refers to the criteria according to which this specific LT is calculated, right? In this case all (global) Deals financially advised in 2018

However, there is no information provided whether the calculation of AF01 takes into account deals advised on the target and acquiror side or just on one of them. Is there any detailed information on how the tables in the LT app are calculated so I am able to rebuild them using the SCREENER?

hi @flammers

Thank you for your patience.

From LT app, I tried to export Excel Formulas using the button below

1639487702593.png

Then I got the =@TF Eikon Excel function, which was mentioned in this thread that this function cannot be used in Eikon Data API as it is a legacy component, which over time will be retired. The replacement is the Screener with the Deals selected as the Universe. Expressions created using Screener can be used in get_data method of Eikon Data APIs.


For, the question related to the criteria according to this specific LT is calculated, as This forum is dedicated to software developers using Refinitiv APIs.

The best resource for content questions is the Refinitiv Helpdesk, which can be reached by either calling the Helpdesk number in your country or submitting a new ticket to the Eikon support team via MyRefinitiv.
