Private Company Analysis

Brian now provides analyses of over 32 million privately held companies from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Spain and UK including key executives and financials!


Since private companies have different accounting standards than public companies, less information is available for them, which results in a certain lack of transparency. Therefore, comprehensive and relevant data for privately held companies is difficult to find and often only available in unstructured form. Why not rely on your expert buddy Brian to provide you with the most important and structured information in the shortest possible time?

For troubleshooting, consider the following:

  • If you can’t find the company you are searching for, please consider the scope mentioned above.
  • When searching for the company it is important to start with the first letters of the actual company name
  • Sometimes, companies report the numbers on higher levels, so it is advisable to search for the parent company and get the information of the parent company
  • Sometimes there is only a few data and Brian provides very limited information – this is due to lack of information on our supplier side
  • If you want to search for a company you can not find via Brian, try to find it using the free service of North Data: and ask Brian then for all the details
  • The “As reported” information is sometimes quite unstructured – this is something we can not improve
