Hints for Finding Company Information

As you are researching companies (both competitors and comparable organizations), please keep these things in mind when using these databases:

  • Public companies have a great deal of available information (SEC filings, annual reports, analyst reports, detailed financials).
  • Private companies will have very little that is available (especially financial).
  • For private companies, use news resources and M&A deal information via Zephyr (if applicable).
  • For private companies, if the data does not look right, do not trust it.
  • Researchers will often try to frame a search for internal company documents - this is virtually never successful.
  • International company information varies a great deal - use a critical eye here.
