Lexis Securities Mosaic Expands Content to Include UK Filings
Added global content and specialized search page help legal professionals competing globally gain a broader picture of the international markets
September 1, 2016 — New York, NY – LexisNexis® Legal & Professional today announced the addition of the UK Filings content and precision search page, available exclusively to users of Lexis® Securities Mosaic®, a market-leading resource for securities research and SEC information. Offering a comprehensive collection of filings available through the National Storage Mechanism of the UK Listing Authority, UK Filings gives users access to filings made with UK regulators for companies traded on UK exchanges, making more than 116,000 readily available and daily updated records searchable from one targeted search screen. Expanding upon the previously available SEC EDGAR® filings made by British companies on U.S. exchanges, Securities Mosaic® now gives users a more accurate and complete picture of the UK markets, unveiling insights into how a business is doing financially and allowing users to keep track of business developments and happenings.
Dating back to the late 1990s, the UK Filings collection contains documents such as prospectuses, periodic reporting, financials and annual general meeting reports from companies that have issued equity securities on the UK trading markets—including the London Stock Exchange® and Irish Stock Exchange. Using the centralized search capabilities of a designated UK Filings page, legal professionals can quickly locate precedent language to ensure new disclosures are in compliance with Financial Conduct Authority requirements and enhance research for due diligence, business development, investment prospecting and more. Users are also able to set up custom alerts via email or RSS for the filings and queries of their choice.
With the addition of filings from UK regulators, we are providing our customers with deeper insight into how major UK companies are behaving—uncovering one important piece of the puzzle needed to fully understand the current dynamics of the UK markets,” said Scott Gabrielle, Senior Director of Product Management for Lexis Securities Mosaic. “In the wake of the Brexit decision, the importance of this information has increased exponentially. As Brexit plays out over the next few years, companies will need to evaluate how it will impact them. This sort of insight into company disclosure is more valuable than ever, and is now incorporated into our Lexis Securities Mosaic collection.”
Lexis Securities Mosaic is an established and trusted resource for regulatory, policy and business activity. The service equips law ﬁrms, businesses and industries with in-depth information and analytics to meet the challenges of global securities-related work. By pulling together a comprehensive selection of filing and disclosure documents, current awareness tools, sources and a broad spectrum of relevant information ranging from international private placement memoranda to law ﬁrm memos, Securities Mosaic helps legal professionals stay compliant against a constantly shifting environment.
The UK Filings are part of the broader international Securities Mosaic content offering, which connects users to over 21 million company filings from U.S. and international companies. Including SEC EDGAR and SEDAR® Canadian filings, as well as Private Placement Memoranda covering international exempt offerings, the solution gives users the ability to reach beyond borders and easily perform global securities research.
“Extending our Lexis Securities Mosaic collection to include UK Filings is a natural step as we work on delivering the best-possible picture of the global market to support law firms, corporations and governmental organizations with their securities-related work,” said Sean Fitzpatrick, Managing Director of North American Research Solutions at LexisNexis. “It exemplifies our commitment to global content expansion and our continued dedication to helping our customers pull together a more complete understanding of the international securities landscape.”
