The articles in the BDC Credit Reporter are only the tip of the content available. In the Company Database we continually update a wealth of useful information about BDC-financed underperforming companies, some which we have written articles about and some not. See the Database Guide for a how-to. We'll just say that there is no end to the ways the ever growing database can be manipulated. You can search by company name, or by credit rating, or by industry, or SIC code. If you've been away for a while, you can look for any updates added from a certain date. There are nearly 40 fields in each Company File and the database can be manipulated in an infinite number of ways to slice and dice the data.

Nor does every Company File just contain data. In each case, we offer "Credit Notes" - our undiluted thoughts about what has happened already to the company in question and what might occur down the pike on key credit concern. We even constantly estimate  what sort of realized loss might ultimately occur, if any, and offer reasons why.

With all that said, here is the BDC Credit Reporter's Company Database which we are adding to all the time. We suggest clicking on "View Larger Version" to get the full picture:
