Guide to annual reports: Other financial reporting
Other financial reporting
The financial statements and related notes in the annual report are primary sources of financial information available to investors, financial analysts, and the public.
Other primary financial information sources include SEC Form 10-K , which the SEC requires companies to submit yearly. This audited form contains more detailed information than the financial statements in the annual report. Companies also provide interim financial reports to stockholders and file an unaudited SEC Form 10-Q quarterly. These quarterly reports provide briefer, more aggregated data for the quarter and year to date.
Companies provide summary financial information throughout the annual report and through news conferences and press releases. To obtain more financial information on companies, visit resources.
