Mine the company website.
For very small companies, one of the few places to find information is their own website. Some key locations to review:
"A list of people, companies, institutions, organizations, etc., in alphabetical or classified order, providing contact information (names, addresses, phone/fax numbers, etc.) and other pertinent details ...in brief format," - ODLIS
Use company directories to identify companies within industries, and to learn more about the companies such as locations, histories, and employees, officers, and directors.
Support Services Directories - Film Industry
Support Services Directories - General
Public companies in Canada and the US are required by law to file copies of their key official documents, like annual reports and audited financial statements, with a central repository.
TIP: Look for the MD&A (Management Discussion & Analysis) in annual reports. MD&As will provide "information to the reader that management believes is useful in understanding the company’s operating results, cash flows, and financial condition" (Full Disclosure Background, 2006).
