The New York Times is expanding its DealBook franchise with more news, information, analysis and features to create the most authoritative source for deal-makers and industries that thrive and function within the deal community. The new expanded edition of DealBook will launch on Tuesday, Nov. 9 across multiple platforms.

DealBook caters to a high-level audience of C-Suite executives and decision-makers and will continue its focus on key beats – M&A, private equity, hedge funds, regulation, law – delivering more scoops, insights and breaking news throughout the day and across platforms.

Barclays Capital, Goldman Sachs, Sotheby's and Tata Consultancy Services are charter advertisers for the relaunch of DealBook.
