F&D Reports (an Information Clearinghouse,
Inc. Company) has been cited as the preferred "second source" in the
ever-increasing credit reporting industry listed behind leader D&B,
according to a Credit Today survey of users published in its June issue.
     F&D Reports' CEO Lawrence Sarf considers this to be affirmation of what the
industry has been saying for years. "We are a solid organization with a
unique approach to providing credit executives the business tools required
in today's volatile economy. Our clients demand industry-specific,
qualitative knowledge and intelligence prepared by seasoned professionals
with proven track records. While D&B continues to be the market leader and
a key resource in credit professionals' toolboxes, we augment the data with
comprehensive, in-depth analyses unique to F&D."
     "The F&D menu of services focuses on leveraging industry expertise across
the entire supply chain," Sarf continued. "In fact, we are even positioned
to handle the exceptions at the end of the chain, where bankruptcy
occasionally takes the place of cash payment. In those situations, we
bring forward our own team of insolvency experts, again demonstrating the
uniqueness of our operation as a one-stop credit resource."
     F&D Reports continues to provide superior products and services to its
growing portfolio of subscribers. To better meet the needs of busy credit
executives, the company has recently launched its Future Outlook Analysis,
which provides a forward-looking view of the liquidity and competitive
position of certain high-interest retailers. We have published the
following Future Outlooks Analysis reports in the past two months: Sears
Holdings, Circuit City Stores, and Bon-Ton Stores among others. Other new
offerings include the Executive Review, with peer-to-peer benchmarking and
trend summary analysis, as well as a web-based Credit Facility Database
that presents the key elements of a company's term loan and revolver. F&D
is also currently anticipating the launch of its redesigned website.
