An extremely important tool in Business Research is LexisNexis Company Dossier, which you will find in the Business Tab of LexisNexis Library Express. Dossier lets you search a company by name, ticker symbol, or D-U-N-S® number. You can also restrict your search by company type, city, state/province or country. From this form, find a wealth of information including headquarters locations, SEC filings, and executive hierarchies. LexisNexis Company Dossier delivers easy-to-read profiles of nearly 43 million companies worldwide and information on 1,000 industries to your desktop in just seconds. It helps you identify potential new clients, understand a company’s brands and trademarks, access detailed financial and recent litigation information, and more.

LexisNexis Company Dossier allows you to browse in-depth company profiles and industry reports with the best intelligence available through LexisNexis® services. Content includes:

When you research a particular company, you will also find their particular NAICS and SIC codes on the company profile.

[edit] Other Company Information on LexisNexis Library Express

In addition to Company Dossier, the "Companies" section on LexisNexis Library Express gives you quick access to company information on the "Company Profiles" and "SEC Filings" search forms. Company Profiles lets you search over a dozen company directories, including:

  • Access Disclosure
  • America's Corporate Finance Directory
  • Experian Business Reports
  • CoreData US Institutional Database
  • Nelson's Public Company Profiles
  • Standard & Poor's Corporate Register

To find news about a company or industry, use the Power Search form with a broad news source selected (such as All News, English) and use the "Add Index Terms" feature to access the SmartIndexing terms for industries and specific companies. Using index terms is far more accurate than doing a free text search on the company name. In the People index, you will find terms for many high-profile corporate executives, allowing you to search for stories on them as well.

Browsing under the Sources tab you will find folders for "Companies & Organizations" and "Industries & Markets" which will lead you to hundreds of additional sources.

[edit] Finding DUNS, CUSIP, and Tickers

Most of the directories listed above include the stockmarket ticker symbol for each company listed. The Standard & Poor's Corporate Register is your best source for all three company identifiers.
