Use this guide to find sources on public and private companies, and industry information.

Private Company Research

It is difficult to find private company information because unlike publicly traded companies, privates are not required to file financial information with the SEC. Consider changing your company to a public company, if this is within the parameters of your research assignment.

If the company is a subsidiary, identify the parent, then determine whether the parent is publicly traded. If the parent is trading publicly, information about the subsidiary may be provided in the 10-K, including revenue figures.
