10-K Reports / SEC filing forms (Microform Collection)
10-K Reports are detailed annual reports which publicly-traded companies must file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. In addition to financial statements, 10-K Reports provide extensive background information on the firm's operations, subsidiaries, business segments, properties, legal proceedings, and more
The library maintains a microfiche collection of 10-K Reports covering the years 1973 - 1996 and owns microfiche for all companies listed on the New York and American Stock Exchanges at the time the report was issued. For these earlier years, the library does not own microfiche 10-K Reports for companies listed only on regional exchanges, the NASDAQ system, or which trade over-the-counter.
10-K Reports are available on microfiche at call number MicFiche HG4028 .B2D56 . Check the library catalog for location information.
10-K Reports on microfiche are arranged alphabetically by company name, then by year within company. To determine whether a company was listed on the New York or American Stock Exchanges during the year in question, consult the "Compact D/SEC" database on CD-ROM, or ask a reference librarian.
