What is SEC Form 10-KSB

SEC Form 10-KSB was a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), also known as the Annual Report for Small Businesses. It was an abbreviated version of the standard Form 10-K that most large public companies filed annually. The form included key information about a company's financial strength, leadership and ownership structure, and was filed within 90 days of the end of the year. This form was no longer used after March 16, 2009, although existing filings remain in the SEC's EDGAR system.


Similar to the SEC Form 10-K, the SEC Form 10-KSB contained crucial information for investors researching potential investments. This was especially true with the companies that filed the Form 10-KSB since the stocks of these small companies most often traded as "penny stocks." Consequently, they lacked significant coverage by third-party analysts.
