The term "tearsheet" refers to the time when brokers would tear individual pages out of the S&P summary book and send them to current or potential clients. Now, with this information available online, such basic company profile information could be considered a tearsheet.

You can find this type of company information using these databases:

S&P Net Advantage.

  • Hover over the Companies tab. Under Search Profiles, click Companies. Use the Search Profile bar to search by company name or ticker.
  • Once you've found your company of interest, click on Tearsheet in the left-hand menu.

LSEG Workspace (formerly Refinitiv):

  • Search for a company by name or ticker in the main search box.
  • Click the Factsheet icon at the upper right side of the page to open an Equity Factsheet. 
  • Hover over the Overview menu in the main company view to toggle between Summary, Valuation, Fundamental, and Trading details.
  • To download a Company Tearsheet template in Excel format: 
    • Type tearsheet in the main search box. Select the Company Tearsheet app. Click the Download button.
    • Follow instructions in the Excel Workbook to change the subject company.

Capital IQ (see access details):

  • Search for a company by name
  • The company's tearsheet should display by default. If it doesn't: navigate to Company Summary in the left side menu and click Tearsheet.
