The Corporate Affiliations public companies database contains listings for all major publicly traded companies with U.S. located headquarters traded on one of the three major U.S. exchanges: NYSE, NASDAQ and NYSEAMEX. Also included are significant companies traded on smaller U.S. exchanges. Investment funds or companies with letter series stocks are not listed in the company directory. Corporate Affiliations lists privately held companies with U.S.-located headquarters or holding companies. Generally, U.S. based private companies must demonstrate revenue in excess of $1 million or greater, 300 employees or substantial assets to be included. When an ultimate parent company is located outside the United States, it is included in the international business database. These would include both public and private companies. Included are the parent companies and their subsidiaries, no matter where the subsidiaries are located. International companies listed generally have revenues of US$10 million or greater, in excess of 300 employee totals or substantial assets/net worth.[3]
