Where can I find financial statements of European companies?
Wednesday, 14 September 2011 14:17
Is there a place similar to the EDGAR database for European corporations?
Unfortunately there is no central database as the companies are all situated in different countries.
What you must keep in mind is that European companies have all the information contained in the annual reports. Not like US companies where the annual report is more like a brochure and you have to go to the SEC document to get the numbers.
You can try this website:
If that doesn't work you can go to Google finance:
Search for the company, and when you have called up the company scroll down and look at the bottom right.
There they usually have a link to the investor relations website of the company where you can get hold of the annual reports.
And if that doesn't help you can Google the company name along with the word "investor relations".
