It might be difficult! Private companies are not required to make the same disclosures that public companies do. However, you may have some success using the following sources:

  • Mergent Online - Includes directory information from Dun & Bradstreet. Be sure to click the checkboxes for "D&B Private Company Database" and/or "D&B 20 Million Plus Private Company Search" to access this info.
  • Business Source Premier - Contains Datamonitor reports on private and public companies. Search by company name, and be sure to select "Company Report" as the Document Type.
  • Hoover's Reports via LexisNexis - Search by company name.

For assistance researching a particular company, please contact the Judy Geczi.
