From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

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.

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.

traded_as

Examples: {{nasdaq|MSFT}} or {{nyse|CAT}} or {{FWB|VOW}}
A list of available stock ticker symbol templates is available at Category:Ticker symbol templates

fate*
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.
predecessor
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]]
successor*
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.]]

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.

Examples:

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)

OR

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)

OR

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)

BUT NOT

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)
