Hello Just Curious, these days it is a mix of press releases from firms that we receive and that we compile into our Deals in Brief column if interesting.

Larger cases and/or ones that are not press released we may cover in more detail. Those usually come from insider info or other contacts, sometimes off-the-record.

Hope this explains,
Kian
