Not sure, but you certainly would not find any public financial details
about the private company I work for, which is headquarted in US with
factories in US, Canada and Europe and other worldwide branches.

Even some time ago when another company considered buying us, we did not
have to open our books to them (not seriously trying to sell anyway).
Since our owner's passing, it is owned by his relatives, which let our
people run it, since they always profit.

So it may depend upon whether the info you are seeking is required to be
disclosed for some reason (government or industry requirement, etc.).

For what sort of information are you looking?

A great deal of financial info about private companies is available free on
the web, from impartial (well, so says the law, in essence) sources such as
www.morningstar.com and finance.yahoo.com . Of course there's always a
company's annual report, which they'll send free to anyone and/or is often
accessible through its web site.

By "private company" Paul Salber may have meant one without publicly
traded stock. Sites such as Morningstar and Yahoo Finance focus on
publicly traded companies.

Don't you mean for public companies? No privately held companies that I am
aware of publish their financial statements and I have never heard of a
law that requires them to do so. My son-in-law is an officer of a
privately held company with over $1 billion in annual sales and they do
not disclose _any_ financial information.

Private company information is available, but it is in pieces and not
organized like public companies. One of the benefits of being private.

You can get some information from Dun & Bradstreet, the in-depth stuff will
require a subscription.

What are you looking for?
