About Mergent Online

Why Use Mergent Online?

When you are investigating a company Mergent Online is your best choice and gives you information beyond what you are going to find on the company's website, free online tools, or even through some of our other databases.

Mergent Online features:

  • Company financials that can go back decades.
  • Government filings and annual reports.
  • Lists of companies in a specific sector and location (country, state, or zip code). 
  • Executive lists.
  • U.S. economic and GDP snapshots and reports.
  • Company Supply Chain - follow a company's products and who a company contracts and partners with to make them.
  • The M&A Scenario Report allows you to review "what if" scenarios on mergers and acquisitions between entities.
  • Locate country and industry information, in addition to specific company information.


Searching in Mergent Online

You have several options from the Mergent Online homepage. The two primary options are:

  • Enter keywords into the search box to the left to search for a specific company.
  • Use the box to the right to search by industry, index, exchange, or country. The industry search is likely the most useful feature here.

Additionally, you can:

  • Use the Country Profile drop down menu to quickly access a country profile (PDF format).
  • Use the Corporate Calendar to see what's going on that day with various company's reporting mechanisms (conference call, earnings calls, etc.).
  • Use the tabs at the top to navigate to the Advanced Search, Executive Search, Government Filings, and other modules. The Advanced Search is where to go if you want to make a list of companies in a specific market and location instead of searching for a specific company.
