The New York Times has launched DealBook, an online financial news report, on NYTimes.com, the company announced yesterday. Edited by Times's chief mergers and acquisitions reporter, Andrew Ross Sorkin, the continually updated report is an extension of the daily email newsletter of the same name. The online report will be published weekdays at NYTimes.com/dealbook and will be updated throughout the market day.
NYTimes.com/dealbook will cover mergers and acquisitions, private equity, hedge funds, venture capital, I.P.O.s, investment banking and legal and regulatory issues. Users will be able to search the site by topic and industry.
"The DealBook newsletter, which started in 2001, has gained a loyal and growing readership. This new service takes it to the next level," said Leonard M. Apcar, editor in chief of NYTimes.com.
