March 21, 2008, Newsletter Issue #88: Check the Secretary of State

Tip of the Week

Check the Secretary of State's office for information on every company incorporated in the state. Even private companies have to file with the Secretary of State. Your private company research should pick up something from these filings. The requirements differ from state to state, but generally include articles of incorporation or charter, company officers, HQ address and phone. It's not as good as what you would get from the SEC on a public company, but every little bit helps.
