Dow Jones & Company (NYSE: DJ) today announced that profiles of more than 90,000 Russian companies and 82,000 German companies are now available in its business productivity solutions, Factiva SalesWorks and Factiva Companies & Executives.

This brings the total universe of company profiles for the Russian and German markets to over 110,000 and 200,000, respectively.

Russian information provider CredInform supplies profiles of public and private companies, including annual sales, net income and number of employees. Where available, the profiles also list key executives, subsidiaries and financial analysis, including an archive of up to five years of financial data. Customers have the ability to screen companies by sales, net income and total assets in various currencies, including rubles. Beginning August 2007, these company profiles will include additional information such as company registration, bank details, shareholders and historical import and export data.

Hoppenstedt, which is owned by one of the largest business data providers in Europe, Bisnode AB, has licensed to Dow Jones company profiles for all companies filing accounts in Germany. These profiles include detailed company and executive information and financial reports. Beginning August, Hoppenstedt will also provide consolidated and unconsolidated financials based on the German HGB accounting standard.

"Organizations spend vast amounts of time researching information about customers, prospects, competitors and business opportunities," says Dennis Cahill, senior vice president and chief product officer, Dow Jones Enterprise Media Group. "Comprehensive company information coupled with unrivalled global news help business professionals to reduce that search time while equipping them with relevant information. Furthermore, these additions reinforce our continued investment in European content."

Dow Jones's relationship with D&B has also been extended, and beginning in August, D&B will provide balance sheets, income statements and key ratios data on companies based in France, Belgium, Netherlands, Finland, Italy, Spain and Portugal.

The additional content enhances the already powerful Factiva SalesWorks and Factiva Companies & Executives, which profile companies from the world's major markets and include tools such as screening and monitoring to better qualify and identify target companies for selling opportunities. European and global customers also benefit from user interfaces in six languages and Dow Jones's multilingual sales and customer service teams.
