ROCKVILLE, Md., June 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- EDGAR® Online, Inc. (NASDAQ: EDGR), a premier provider of fundamental financial data, analytics and disclosure management services, today announced the launch of the OTC Fundamental Data Service, an OTC market dataset featuring unique information on companies that do not file fundamental data and disclosures with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Through its partnership with OTC Markets Group – the largest OTC marketplace platform, with almost 10,000 securities trading on three marketplaces: OTCQX, OTCQB and OTC Pink – EDGAR Online will provide insight and information allowing institutional investors, analysts, data providers and enterprises access to three years of fundamental data from quarterly and annual financial statements for more than 800 companies trading on the OTC market.
Prior to the availability of the OTC Fundamental Data Service, investors relied on disparate sources and formats for OTC financials information. Now individuals can easily use the detailed fundamentals to identify new investment targets, accurately create credit reviews, and compare OTC companies within their peer groups. EDGAR Online will provide the dataset through its own I-Metrix Pro platform, via a web service, the OTC Markets Group website and Yahoo! Finance, where it will be accessible through the individual company quote pages.
"Previous to this dataset's release, market data on these 800 OTC companies was not as widely accessible to investors who were trying to analyze and compare data for value-based decision-making. Leveraging almost twenty years of expertise in creating, collecting and consuming data, we are expanding the universe of information on publicly traded companies and allowing investors to better govern their investment decisions and manage their risk within the market," said David A. Frankel, chief marketing officer of EDGAR Online. "We look forward to expanding our partnership with OTC Markets in the future. Together, we expect to increase data access points and build out the historical information to allow for ratios and back-testing to identify new investment opportunities."
Matt Fuchs, Managing Director – Market Data & Strategy of OTC Markets Group, said, "Providing investors with access to fundamental data for companies using our Disclosure Service underscores our commitment to providing a more transparent OTC marketplace for investors. By distributing this information with EDGAR Online and their partners, we ensure that institutional investors, market participants, retail investors and corporations have access to the data they need to make informed decisions."About EDGAR®Online, Inc.EDGAR®Online (NASDAQ: EDGR) provides financial data, analytics and disclosure management solutions to help corporations and institutional investors facilitate compliance and management of regulatory disclosure filings.
