Results

YipitData is an alternative data firm that extracts billions of data points from the web and other alternative data sources to generate proprietary data and KPIs on industries and individual companies.

SESAMm’s TextReveal® platform enabled Carlyle to extract valuable insights on the alternative data market to assess the global market opportunity based on the analysis of more than 17 billion web articles and messages. Using NLP in its due diligence process, Carlyle’s deal team was able to confirm YipitData’s leading market position and growth prospects across multiple industries and geographies. Furthermore, a risk analysis drawn from social discussions, anonymous forums and dark web content concluded there was very low risk associated with the company.

SESAMm provided valuable insights based on the analysis of billions of documents for this specific deal and helped translate unstructured contents into industry-level trends, competitive insights and risk analytics. These types of analytics can add value to the entire investment lifecycle, from sourcing to due diligence and portfolio monitoring — providing investment teams with key insights to assess investment opportunities and build a competitive edge.

“SESAMm provided us with valuable and timely insights for our investment process through its NLP alternative data. They helped us gain even more confidence in YipitData’s strong potential by confirming the company’s leading position. We are very happy with the insights provided by SESAMm and look forward to further collaborations.” Senior Associate – Technology Private Equity, The Carlyle Group
