Pitchbook defined: A pitchbook is a presentation (usually in PowerPoint format) prepared by an investment banking firm or other middle-man that provides an overview to potential investors of the opportunities of the investment, such as a proposed M&A deal. The term is also used to refer to the presentation an investment banking firm gives to a potential client (for example, a private company considering potential acquisitions or an IPO) as part of a “beauty contest” where the potential client company is listening to presentations (“pitches”) from several investment banks before selecting one to handle the transaction.
