Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is used to create an infobox in an article about a company.

Usage[change source]

To use this template in an article, copy the template below, then paste the template into an article.

All fields are optional—fields you do not populate with data will not show up in the infobox when the article is saved.

With the exception of the genre and aum fields, which only apply to certain types of companies, do not erase fields for which you do not have data or which may not apply at the time you create the infobox.

Use either location by itself OR the combination of both location_city and location_country to list the company's headquarters city, state/province and country.

You must remove the comment marks (<!-- and -->) if you populate data in fields below that show comment marks in order for the data to appear in the published article.

Parameters[change source]

An asterisk (*) after a field name denotes a field that is used only for a defunct company.

Use either location by itself OR the combination of both location_city and location_country to list the company's headquarters city, state/province and country..

Note that the examples below are presented in wikicode and do not necessarily reflect actual statistics.

The full legal name of the company. This may be different from the common name of the company used for the article title.
Examples: Caterpillar Inc., General Electric Company, Microsoft Corporation
If the company is based in a non-English speaking country, the name field should read [Name of company] <br /> [Name of company in native language].
Example: KLM Royal Dutch Airlines <br /> Koninklijke Luchtvaart Maatschappij
The company's current, primary wordmark or logo. Use the logo of the legal entity that is the subject of the article. (That logo may be different from the logo of the parent company or any subsidiary companies.)
For companies that use both a wordmark and a logo, upload a file that shows the two in combination if the combined form serves as the company's primary identity mark.
Wordmark example: Microsoft. Logo example: Apple Inc. Combined logo and wordmark example: Altria.
Upload a wordmark/logo using the organization logo upload form.
Descriptive information for the logo, if necessary.
Type of company, Public, Private, Joint venture or similar. (See ownership to list ownership percentages for private companies and joint ventures, if applicable.)
Example: [[public company|Public]]
Example: [[privately held company|Private]] (subsidiary of [[Berkshire Hathaway]])
Use this field to enter the stock symbol ticker of publicly traded companies using a stock ticker template.
Examples: {{nasdaq|MSFT}} or {{nyse|CAT}} or {{FWB|VOW}}
A list of available stock ticker symbol templates is available at Category:Ticker symbol templates
This entry is used for publishing and media companies only.
If this field is filled, consider using {{infobox publisher}} instead.
If the article subject is not a publishing or media company, delete this field from the article.
Examples: Biographies, Science fiction, Western
The reason a company became defunct.
Examples: Acquired, Bankruptcy, Dissolved, Merged
If the cause of the company's dissolution is unclear, do not populate this field.
The legal name(s) of the predecessor(s) of the company.
Example (as used in Berliner-Joyce Aircraft): Berliner Aircraft Company
If the company exists as the result of the merger of two or more legal entities, list the predecessors alphabetically, using the <br /> wikicode to separate each entity.
Example, as used in Caterpillar Inc.: [[C. L. Best|C. L. Best Tractor Company]] <br /> [[Holt Manufacturing Company]]
The legal name of the successor(s) of the company. Usually the successor is the company that acquired this company.
Example (as used in NeXT): [[Apple Inc.]]
If a company is broken into parts and sold to several different entities, there may be several successors listed. List the successors alphabetically, using the <br /> wikicode to separate each entity.
Example: [[The People's Corporation of Judea]] <br /> Splitter division of [[The Judean People's Company]]
Location and date of the company's founding. Use {{Start date}} for the date.
Example: [[Albuquerque, New Mexico]], United States ({{Start date|1975|04|27}})
Person(s)/entrepreneur(s) who founded the company.
Example: [[Bill Gates]] <br /> [[Paul Allen]]

Examples: {{End date|2000}}, {{End date|2000|06|30}}
Current city or city and state/province location of the company's headquarters. If this field is used, also populate location_country but do not use the location field.
Examples: [[Redmond, Washington]]; [[Nuremberg]]
Current country of the company's headquarters. Do not use flag icons, as this places an unnecessary emphasis on nationality; see MOS:FLAG for a detailed rationale. If this field is used, also populate location_city but do not use the location field.
Example: U.S.
Example: Germany
Current location of the company's headquarters. May be in the format of City, State, Country or City, Country. If this field is used, do not populate either location_city or location_country.
Number of locations the company has physical properties, expressed as a number, followed by the property type, then the applicable year in parentheses.
Example: 815 stores (2011)
Geographic area(s) the company does business in. Use the largest geographic area(s) that apply. If, for example, a company does business in every province in Canada, list Canada, do not list each province.
Examples: Worldwide, North America, United States, [[New York metropolitan area]]
Up to four key individuals closely associated with the company. This list may include the founders if the founders hold current leadership positions. Use <br /> to separate each name.
Generally list prominent, current executives within the company holding key positions such as chairman of the board of directors, chief executive officer, president, head of design, etc.
For existing companies, it may be appropriate to list past executives who played an especially prominent role in the company's history.
Example: in the case of General Electric: [[Jack Welch]]<br /><small>(former [[chairman]] and [[chief executive officer|CEO]] 1981-2001)</small>
For defunct companies, list the most prominent former executives.

Example: US$32,016,008,004 (2011)
Use this field to list ownership percentages for private companies owned by a few key individuals or to list ownership percentages for joint ventures, if applicable.

Notes[change source]

Instructions for the financial results fields[change source]

Six fields (revenue, operating_income, net_income, aum, assets and equity) are used to record a company's financial results.

Each field entry should include three elements: an indicator icon comparing current result to the result of the immediately preceding period, the result expressed in the currency reported by the company and the financial year the result represents, in parentheses.

Example: Increase US$128,064,032 (2011)

Indicator icons[change source]

You may include an indicator icon to indicate the change compared to the previous fiscal year; to avoid confusion, place the indicator before the number. Please note that this is intended to depict the direction of change compared to the previous year, not the actual numerical change in value. If no citable information is available for previous fiscal year data, please do not use an icon.

Increase {{increase}}, Steady {{steady}} or Decrease {{decrease}}
Example: {{increase}} US$128,064,032 <small>(2011)</small>

Consistent notation[change source]

There are different ways to record financial results that are in the millions or billions of dollars. Pick one and use it consistently in all fields.

Do not express results as a decimal such as Increase US$.963 billion (2010). Instead choose a notation that will allow you to express all results for the period in whole numbers.

In this example use Increase US$963 million (2010) or Increase US$963,000,000 (2010) and apply your choice to all the financial results consistently.


Exact dollars

| revenue          = {{increase}} US$42,588,363,000 (2010)
| operating_income = {{increase}} US$3,963,082,345 (2010)
| net_income       = {{increase}} US$2,700,376,442 (2010)
| assets           = {{increase}} US$64,020,364,188 (2010)
| equity           = {{increase}} US$10,863,945,862 (2010)


Rounded billions

| revenue          = {{increase}} US$42.588 billion (2010)
| operating_income = {{increase}} US$3.963 billion (2010)
| net_income       = {{increase}} US$2.700 billion (2010)
| assets           = {{increase}} US$64.020 billion (2010)
| equity           = {{increase}} US$10.864 billion (2010)


Rounded millions

| revenue          = {{increase}} US$42,588 million (2010)
| operating_income = {{increase}} US$3,963 million (2010)
| net_income       = {{increase}} US$2,700 million (2010)
| assets           = {{increase}} US$64,020 million (2010)
| equity           = {{increase}} US$10,864 million (2010)


Do not use an inconsistent mix of the three styles depicted in the examples above. Below is an example of undesirable, inconsistent notation.

| revenue          = {{increase}} US$42,588 million (2010)
| operating_income = {{increase}} US$.963 billion (2010)
| net_income       = {{increase}} US$2,700,376,442 (2010)
| assets           = {{increase}} US$64,020 million (2010)
| equity           = {{increase}} US$10,864,445,862 billion (2010)
