ABSTRACT
The article discusses best practices for posting corporate financial reports online. In 2003 at least six million investors in North America will obtain financial reports online. And with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission encouraging online posting, that number is likely to increase. Companies can choose among various methods for posting. Perhaps the least useful for investors is accumulating all financial data into a single .PDF file. Reports presented via image files can also be inconvenient. The best choice is to make corporate reports available in HTML format.
