MONEY: ASK THE FOOL
Sunday 14 March 1999
The starting point for finding out information about any company is to contact it direct. Easynet's phone number is 0171-681 4444.
For starters, request the company's annual report, which tells you what the company does and what it sees as its prospects. The annual report also has the three key accounting statements - profit and loss, cash flow and balance sheet. After that, if you have access to the internet, this can be a wonderful source of information.
The company has a website (www.easynet.co.uk) and you can swap thoughts with other investors at the Motley Fool's message boards. Finding out more about the company's competitive environment might help you decide whether it is a sound long-term investment.
Send us your question and if we publish it, you'll win a FOOL baseball cap. E-mail to UKColumn@fool.com or post to Motley Fool, The Independent On Sunday, 1 Canada Square, London E14 5DL.
