Deloitte & Touche LLP Launches PeerScape, the Premier Forum for Financial Analysis and Company Information

 FREE membership now available


EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J., Nov. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- (MMG) -- Deloitte & Touche Consulting Group announced today the launch of PeerScape, the most powerful source of financial information on the Internet. As a system for comparative performance analysis, PeerScape allows users to compare one company to its peer group of companies along a comprehensive set of performance measures. The web site is located at http://www.peerscape.com/.

"PeerScape is an invaluable analysis tool for anyone with a stake in corporate performance," said Deloitte & Touche's Tariq Sattar. "It is ideal for individual investors and shareholders, corporate management and corporate oversight, finance specialists and institutional investors, and professional service providers."

PeerScape provides instant investment bank analysis, delivering industry and company research electronically in Adobe PDF format. Its advanced query tool enables users to pinpoint companies that meet multiple business criteria using both a structured and open-ended format. PeerScape provides links by company to stock quotes and stock performance graphs, as well as company home pages, SEC EDGAR pages, news and more. The companies on PeerScape are updated once a month, incorporating changes in market value and share price as well as fundamental updates incorporating 10K and 10Q filings.

PeerScape products include:

-- Company Research: providing in-depth and comprehensive analyses of over 7,000 companies versus their selected company peer group. Benchmarks include more than 40 financial, operational and shareholder return ratios.

-- Industry Profiles: Sophisticated comparative analyses and 5,000 industry focused links. Industry CD-ROMs are also available for 46 different industry groups.

-- Custom Solutions: custom solutions for customers' analytical needs, including on site licensing of the PeerScape database and on-site consulting. Customers can also request customized versions of the PeerScape reports.

For company research, PeerScape's Quick Search tool enables users to search its company name or ticker and view a list of available reports, industry links, company specific Internet links and stock quotes. Advanced searches by company description, financial performance, operational performance, shareholder return or corporate size are also possible.

PeerScape also includes "Where Do You Stand vs. the S&P 500?," a reference guide used to compare the financial and operating performance of a company versus the median score of non-financial companies in the S&P 500 index. Similarly, "Where Do You Stand vs. Your Industry?" compares a company's financial and operating performance versus the median score of companies in one of the 46 Industry Groups.

PeerScape Concepts, including Corporate Performance Benchmarking and the Exceeding Expectations Index are also featured on the web site. Corporate Performance Benchmarking is a structured approach to performance benchmarking used to explain the differences that drive shareholder value.

"We have identified the key interrelationships that impact market expectations," said Sattar. "Based on these relationships, we quantify and compare performance versus peer group and broad market measures over the appropriate time frames. By understanding how decisions and operating performance drive shareholder value relative to peer company performance, PeerScape assists in the process of continuous improvement."

Deloitte & Touche LLP is currently offering all of the services on the web site at no charge. Subscription plans for premium services will be offered starting next year.
