Once companies file their financial statements, RapidRatings will typically release ratings guidance within 1-2 business days. Public company financial data is obtained through Thomson Reuters, a leading provider. Our system will list the “Approximate Rating Update Expected” date for the next 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.
