It is very difficult to research private companies and/or subsidiaries.  Most of our information on public companies comes from public filings with the SEC.  Private companies and subsidiaries do not generally report in this same way.  (There is some variation in what private companies must report in different nations.)  We can sometimes find very sparse information in a handful of our databases (especially if it's a large, U.S. private company), but generally this is a question you might want to discuss with the Business Librarian.  You can lookup whether your company is a subsidiary in the Corporate Affiliations database.  The NetAdvantage database or the PrivCo database are best bet starting points for limited private company profiles.
