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: Bulk files are delivered as delimited text files via download. API also available. Contact us for more information.
