Public companies are required by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to make certain financial information available to the public. Find SEC filings and reports in LexisNexis Academic Database, or in the EDGAR database found on the SEC's website. Also, check the company's website for an "investor relations" section. Private companies are not held to the same laws as public, so you may need to rely on journal articles to gain insight. Try Business Source Premier Database.
