EDGAR

Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis and Retrieval. An electronic system that the SEC uses to allow publicly-traded companies to make necessary filings more quickly and efficiently. Every publicly-traded company in the United States with an asset value greater than $10 million and more than 500 shareholders, as well as other companies listed on a major stock exchange, must use EDGAR to file its quarterly and annual reports and any other information it must submit to the SEC. Since its institution in 1996, filing efficiency has improved considerably.
