PR Newswire partners with Virtua Research to provide clients with ability to display balance sheet, income statement and cash flow data directly sourced from XBRL
NEW YORK, June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Investor relations departments can now ensure the release of accurate financial data on their website while also eliminating onerous and time-consuming processes with the announcement of a new partnership between PR Newswire and Virtua Research. The partnership seamlessly brings Virtua’s Interactive Analyst Center – the only product available today that delivers interactive, as-reported financial and operating data for IR websites – into the popular investor relations website solution, IR Room MST. Designed for investors and analysts, the Interactive Analyst Center makes company financial data more readily accessible and easier to understand online.
All IR Room MST clients can now publish their financial fundamental information directly from their own official SEC XBRL files. This eliminates the concerns issuers have long held regarding the inaccuracies of manually collected third-party financial fundamental data and delivering that data to their shareholders.
PR Newswire will be demonstrating IR Room MST with IAC at the National Investor Relations (NIRI) 2014 Annual Conference, June 8 – 11, 2014, in Las Vegas.
“Investor Relations Officers and CFOs have continually faced challenges with publishing unverified third-party financial information on their IR website,” said Bradley H. Smith, Director of Marketing for PR Newswire’s investor relations and compliance services. “While striving to be transparent in shareholder communications, using other data sources has opened the door for human error and forced IR departments to painstakingly double-check financial data, line-by-line. The IR Room MST with IAC uses the company’s own XBRL to eliminate that time-consuming task and seamlessly deliver company-verified reports online. It’s a wonderful example of the promise of XBRL realized.”
The use of XBRL with IR Room MST completes an end to end experience for clients that also use PR Newswire’s regulatory compliance division, Vintage, for the actual XBRL filing.
In addition to Virtua’s IAC, IR Room MST also includes three other elements – Mobile, Social and Targeting:
- The IRapp™, the leading mobile app for a company’s investor relations content.
- StockTwits IR for “hands-free” social media newsflow to the most socially engaged investors and financial portals.
- Inbound Investor Targeting which uses content marketing methodologies to measure the effectiveness of IR outbound communications.
IR Room MST is available now as a complete investor relations website solution and as an upgrade package for all of PR Newswire’s current IR Room clients. For more information, visit: http://www.thevintagegroup.com/products/investor-relations-ir-websites.html
