Looking for data for a private company?
Unlike public companies, private companies aren't required to disclose financials and other info--so it can be difficult to find detailed information on private companies. It's even more difficult if it's a small private company.
Beware: It is difficult to find high quality information on private companies. Even though the sources listed here are "better than average quality," sales figures and other private company info are often wrong even in these sources.
Companies traded on U.S. stock exchanges must file various reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The SEC makes these reports available via EDGAR. This includes the 10-K, 10-Q, 8-K, proxy, registration, and other forms (but often not the Annual Report to Shareholders).
