SourceMedia's Investment Dealers' Digest Unveils New Website

Relaunch of Coincides With New Daily E-Newsletter and Key Staff Additions

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - December 5, 2007) - Investment Dealers' Digest, which has been chronicling Wall Street and the capital markets since 1935, has relaunched its website,, and introduced a daily e-newsletter providing important updates on investment banking and capital markets.

The new website will dramatically improve the online experience for IDD readers and subscribers, and is anchored by our new IDD People Database, a unique tool that allows our subscribers to search for hundreds of movers and shakers in the investment banking, private equity, hedge fund and capital markets world -- all in one place. The one-of-a-kind database offers current job titles, contact information, employment history, educational background and other information that can help users create and maintain the relationships that are so vital to their business.

"In addition to its value as a research tool, the People Database provides a user-friendly platform for high-level networking, which is critical in a volatile market," said Adam Reinebach, Publisher of IDD.

As part of the launch, IDD will be offering a free, daily e-newsletter, providing updates on the biggest events of the business day, along with stories that other outlets won't duplicate.

The launch of the new is the latest step in the rebuilding effort going on at one of the most recognized publications in business news. The weekly magazine has made a series of key hires in recent months, adding decades of combined financial-journalism experience.

IDD is led by Editor Tom Granahan, who has more than 15 years of business-reporting and editing experience, having written about the stock market for Dow Jones Newswires and for The Wall Street Journal for several years. Other key hires include Managing Editor Aleksandrs Rozens, a veteran reporter who has had stints at Reuters, the Associated Press, Dow Jones and The Deal, and Kelly Holman, IDD's Assistant Managing Editor, who has covered the private equity industry for a decade, most recently for The Deal, prior to joining IDD in September.

"I'm extremely proud to be at the helm of IDD, one of the finest business publications around today. The dissemination of news has changed dramatically since IDD was first launched back in 1935, and one of the results is that readers have more options from which to get their news. Our job is to cut through the clutter and present information that is not only well written and deeply researched, but is also news and analysis our readers need to know.

"Our readers can continue to count on stories that other financial-media outlets cover inadequately or miss entirely, written by journalists with some of the best sources on the Street. At IDD, we pride ourselves on having access to the biggest players in the financial industry, as evidenced by some of our recent interviews with Lewis Ranieri, John Gutfreund, Thomas H. Lee, and the co-heads of Goldman Sachs' restructuring group, among many others."
