TDnet (Timely Disclosure Network) is a service that gathers timely disclosure releases of listed companies, etc. throughout Japan and disseminates this information to investors and other users in real-time.
Subscribers can obtain information in various ways depending on their purpose, for example, the TDnet Database Service allows subscribers to search disclosed information from the past five years based on various criteria via the Internet, while the TDnet Server-Based Service is a data feed service that delivers data via dedicated telecommunication lines. Since subscribers to all TDnet services can access earnings information and financial information in XBRL format, work such as the re-entry of data can be omitted.
