We have sourced data from a wide range of providers, including companies own websites and annual reports, specialist providers such as Dealogic as well as rating agencies. We are particularly grateful to Fitch Ratings, which agreed to provide us with specially prepared, up to date commentary on those issuers it rates. Moodys and Standard & Poors also helped us, providing us with company profiles, and more detailed information on those companies that Fitch does not rate. We are also grateful to Markit, which provided credit default swap information on those issuers it has data for, and Dealogic, which provided league tables of the top bond, loan and equity bookrunners for each issuer.
We have also attempted to present, where possible, data for the issuing entity. However, Dealogic has provided its league tables based on the parent company as issuer.Like every data search that EuroWeek undertakes we started off with the aim of presenting uniform data for each issuer. Inevitably, however, more data was available for some issuers than others, so the data profiles vary.EuroWeek would like to point out that the choice, research, compilation and use of data in the following profiles has been undertaken by EuroWeek and not the sponsors of this report.
