Foreign company filings now in Data Simply ESG data feed and application

Expanded ESG analysis with foreign company filings

Foreign company filings at the SEC are now included in the Data Simply analysis and included in our ESG API data feed and online application. It is useful whether you are doing ESG related portfolio analysis, negative screens, positive screens, or tracking a portfolio for sustainable investing and responsible investing. Corporations wanting to track their competitors (or their own) information for corporate responsibility and corporate sustainability efforts can use it for this as well.

New filing types for your ESG sustainable and responsible investing analysis, and corporate sustainability programs

The additional types of foreign company form filings included by Data Simply are:

  • 20-F: 

SEC Form 20-F is issued by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and must be submitted by all "foreign private issuers" with listed equity shares on exchanges in the United States. Form 20-F calls for the submission of an annual report within six months of the end of the company's fiscal year or if the fiscal year-end date changes. The reporting and eligibility requirements for Form 20-F are stated in the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

  • 40-F:

A filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), also known as the Registration and Annual Report for Canadian Securities Form. It is used by Canadian companies wishing to offer their securities to U.S. investors. In addition to the standard information included on this form describing the security and the company, it also provides domestic and Canadian contact information for the issuer.

  • F-1 and F-1/A:

A filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) required for the registration of certain securities by foreign issuers. SEC Form F-1 is required to register securities issued by foreign issuers for which no other specialized form exists or is authorized. The form F-1/A is an amendment that is filed to the original F-1 form. It can include additional details such as pricing.
