Coverage: Our Shares Outstanding data includes both official and adjusted shares outstanding for listed securities from over 120 countries worldwide (download list). Included are:
Official figures from stock exchanges, regulatory authorities, and the listing companies are updated as soon as new figures are made available by the official source. The frequency of the official updates varies from market to market ranging from daily to annually. Because corporate actions may occur between official updates and have an important impact on the number of shares outstanding, we offer an additional feed of adjusted shares outstanding values. After a corporate action event, we adjust the shares outstanding figures and then revert to the official figures once they have been published. History: Varies by exchange/country -- please contact us for details.
Updates: Shares outstanding files are updated 3 times a day (e.g. after the close in Asia/Pacific, Europe/Middle East/Africa, and the Americas). We provide a "master file" that includes all of the requested data as of that date. Then assuming you subscribe to updates going forward, we provide a "delta file" each day going forward with only the changes to the "master file". A full refresh is available upon request.
Delivery: Files are delivered as delimited text files via ftp download, or you may also access your shares outstanding data via your web browser and receive daily emails of new announcements for instruments in your portfolios and your selection of events.
Pricing: Data costs depends on several inputs, including:
For which companies do you want data (the complete data set, or a specific list of companies)
