» BvD launches the internet version of OSIRIS. Increased coverage, more specialist data providers and internet version to be launched at Online 2001
Chicago, Il., November 12, 2001 / -- Bureau van Dijk (BvD) is continuing to develop its OSIRIS product and is launching the Internet version at this year''s Online exhibition (stand 136).

Launched on CD-ROM in April 2001, OSIRIS is a complete global listed company database. It combines information from various specialist sources, namely World''Vest Base for industrial companies, Fitch for banks and Thomson Financial Insurance Solutions for the insurance companies and provides various reports to reflect different accounting procedures and formats.

BvD has recently signed agreements with local information providers in Japan, Korea and China, which have increased coverage to 25,000 companies including banks and insurance companies.

In addition to accounts OSIRIS contains Reuters news, detailed earnings estimates and recommendations collated by JCF, a new stock data section provided by Fininfo and ratings from Standard and Poor''s, Moody''s and Fitch. Other recent additions include industry codes from Dow Jones and within the ownership section, researched by BvD''s in-house consultants, the ability to identify and search by a company''s degree of independence.

The financial information can be displayed in a range of formats with varying levels of detail and standardisation (including the "as reported" data and re-stated accounts) so users can do accurate cross-border searching and analysis whilst still having the ability to drill right down to the raw data. BvD''s other company information products are seamlessly linked to OSIRIS so users can get detailed reports on private subsidiaries.

OSIRIS is also compatible with Moody''s Financial Analyst (MFA), a widely used analysis and modelling tool. A link has been created to enable users to automatically import OSIRIS data into the MFA application.

As with BvD''s other Internet products, OSIRIS offers users the choice of both easy and expert search modes. The expert search facility incorporates all of the advanced search and analysis features that are available on the CD-ROM.
