It can be very difficult, if not impossible, to find financial data for private companies (especially smaller companies). Unlike public companies, private companies are not required to file financial reports with the SEC.
Try these sources and strategies:
- PrivCo is the best database we have for finding financial information for private companies.
- After using PrivCo, check the following databases:
- Look for information in articles about the company. The best databases for articles are listed on the the Business Topics databases page.
- Explore the company’s website – including their press releases.
