» World'Vest Base announces search functionality on PDF annual report library
Chicago, Illinois, June -- World''Vest Base Inc., today announced the release of WVB SEARCHABLE PDF, http://www.wvb.com -- WVB Searchable PDF, provides investment professionals worldwide with instant access to word and phrase search capabilities on the WVB PDQ company reports library. This is the first, and presently only, service that delivers this capability via the web. Using Natural Language Searching the service will examine the sentence, extract nouns and noun phrases and construct a query for the user. The user can enter any text, in various languages, from a proper question, to a string of words and phrases, without worrying about the query language. An additional option available is Boolean Searching. This allows the users of the service to search on words with the same prefix; search for all forms of a word; search with the keyword NEAR, rather than AND; refine the queries with the AND NOT keywords to exclude certain text from your search; add the OR keyword to find all instances of either one word or another; and by putting quotation marks around keywords, the service will take them literally. Launched to provide an electronic delivery path for its investment banking and investment management clients, the version of this service allows the user to search on both current and historical financial documents of over 12,000 non-USA companies.

"Our aim is to give our clients the information and capabilities they need to search and manipulate financial data in the easiest and cost effective way possible, allowing them more time to concentrate in the analysis and decision making process. " said Philippe O. Piette Jr., CEO of World''Vest Base Inc.

The WVB services further include the WVB Quickview; WVB Dossiers; WVB Master with direct import into an Excel spreadsheet; WVB Analytical Models and various database search routines. In addition to WVBnet, World''Vest Base is available through a variety of third-party information services (Hemmington Scott http://www.hemscot.com, Data Downlink http://www.xls.com, OM Gruppen http://www.omgroep.com, ADR http://www.adr.com and WOQATS http://www.woqats.com).
