The primary tool for company research is Mergent Online and we recommend going here first for any company research needs. Additionally, Statista also includes a "Company DB" section and other tools with company information. After that, if you need more or have different company information needs, see the "Finding Company Information Elsewhere in the Library" section for tips and resources.
Business Source Ultimate and ProQuest both have company information as well, which are typically presented as downloadable reports in PDF format. These can be good if you need a quick all-in-one report on company basics and don't need a deep dive into the company details that Mergent provides. Another way to look at it: EBSCO may give you a SWOT analysis, while Mergent gives you the information necessary to create your own.
