Once companies file their financial statements, RapidRatings will typically release ratings guidance within 1-2 business days. We obtain our public company financial data through Thomson Reuters, a leading provider. Our system will provide you with the “Approximate Rating Update Expected” so you will know exactly when we plan to have an updated rating.
Public filing requirements do vary slightly by size and even country. The deadline for an organization to file annual statements is 60-90 days following the year end date whereas the quarterly deadline is 40-45 days.
For more information about the release of 10-K/10-Q please refer to the SEC website:
