Data is also available for 1,000 Canadian companies and 8,800 U.S. companies that are no longer active due to mergers, bankruptcy, privitization, or other events. Reports can be created for individual companies as well as for comparisons between multiple firms. Self-customized or company-formatted reports may be printed or downloaded to ASCII files for use in other software such as Excel, Lotus, PC SAS, and any software accepting ASCII files.
