Calcbench parses numeric data from 8-K earnings releases.
We process every earnings release PRNewsWire, BusinessWire, and GlobeNewWire publish. In general the data from us will be available minutes after it hits the wire.
The quantity/quality of the data extracted from the release varies. We attempt to match the html tables with XBRL tables from the 10-K to associate each line in the press release table with a line in the table from income statement.
Attached is a spreadsheet with the data extracted from Pier 1's press release published by the wire at 4:15 on October 3rd 2018. Calcbench published the data a few seconds after 4:16:38. https://www.
