Capitaline Plus is the single most exhaustive and accurate computerised corporate database available on listed and unlisted Indian companies. With liberalisation imparting a certain vibrancy and complexity to the capital markets, the sheer power of and need for information has never been felt as much before as it is being felt now. And considering the prohibitively high cost of developing an in-house database, Capitaline Plus is an indispensable tool for a wide gamut of finance professionals, including fund managers, bankers, analysts and individual investors.
The software is supported by data on over 9,500 companies, classified under different industry heads. Written on MS Windows, Capitaline Plus incorporates the state-of-the-art facilities like Graphics, Currency Conversion, Forecasters, Multimedia and even Web-link, features rarely found in databases.
The all-encompassing nature of the software is manifest in the Company Module which contains every financial and non-financial detail pertaining to a company including Financial Overview, Profit and Loss Account and Balance Sheet for the last ten years, half yearly and quarterly results with footnotes, shareholding pattern along with details of the Top Shareholders in public category with number of shares held, daily share price data from BSE & NSE, credit rating information, Cash Flow statement classifying cash flows during the period from operating, investing and financing activities as published by the company, Power & Fuel data besides ratio and fund-flows analysis and EVA module which is the latest sensation among analysts. And in these fast-changing times of rapid data obsolescence, daily updation is meticulously carried out by incorporating news-clippings, share prices and latest financials. A daily updation file can be downloaded from our Web site.
Raw data, by itself, is obviously of little use. Capitaline Plus not only presents raw data in a readable format, but also facilitates analysis, interpretation, forecasting and extensive querying. It enables comparison of company financials and ratio with other companies / industry aggregates and examination of performance trends of the last ten years. It facilitates forecasting revised bottom lines as a result of a change in any of the innumerable parameters like interest rates, depreciation laws, excise duties or even tax rates.
Complementing Capitaline Plus is the CapitaStocks OLé software that has been created for technical analysis. In fact, the two can be viewed simultaneously in two windows. A company's ten-year financials are in one window, with its price charts and moving averages. It is a combination of powerful software, accurate data and prompt updation.
Capitaline Plus, designed to be an extremely user-friendly database package, contains financial statement, ratio analysis, fund flows, product profiles and many other non-financial data on more than 7000 companies, as also 332 industries under which each of these companies are categorised. The main strengths of Capitaline Plus are:
- Extensive and accurate data on companies which run into 600 financial fields.
- Complete data on Finished Products and Raw Materials coded as per Brussels' Harmonised Nomenclature (ITC).
- Prompt, regular and fast updation of data.
- A very aesthetic and easy programme to use the database.
- State-of-the-art 'Windows' environment.
- Prompt after-sale services and hands-on training by a team of committed professionals.
And you need not know anything about computers!

Now, let us see what information can be obtained by just 'clicking'.
Well, there's an entire cornucopia. In fact, it is doubtful whether such copious information on companies is available anywhere else!
Now we will quickly run you through all the 'windows' of data that you can view by just 'clicking'.

Often, it becomes imperative to juxtapose individual company data and the aggregate data of all companies in one industry, on one screen for easy comparison. For instance, when you are viewing data on Hindalco, it will be helpful if you can also see data on Indal, Malco, Nalco and the aluminum industry aggregate on the same screen.
The industry composite module sets up such a comparison for all industries, giving Balance Sheets and P & L A/C in both absolute and ratio formats. There is a write-up on major industries which covers the major players in the industry, capacity, industry trends, etc. Each with a single mouse 'click'.
PRODUCTS AND COMMODITIES
How useful will it be to view data on every major product affecting the bottom lines of companies, giving the following details?
All users and producers. For instance, take caustic soda. With a single click of the mouse, you can view a screen giving the names of all companies producing caustic soda, with complete details on production, sales, unit sale price, etc. Similarly, another screen lists names of all users, with details on quantity used last year, unit price paid, etc. Let the duties on caustic soda change, and lo! with just a click, you can identify all companies that will be affected adversely or benefited by the change. Products have been classified and coded on the internationally-accepted Brussels' Harmonised Nomenclature.
And what does the price chart of a commodity look like today with the latest price movements? Another screen will give you the national and international price movements of the commodity. And how does the national production fluctuate month-by-month? Capitaline Plus provides data on that too.
CHARTS & CURRENCY
Capitaline Plus provides two rare, but immensely useful, functions. With just the second 'click', you can create beautiful chart patterns out of any data on any screen!
All financial data can be converted to any currency and viewed. Say, you want to convert all Balance Sheet figures of Telco into US$ for a presentation abroad, it is just another 'click' operation.
That completes all your single 'clicks'.
By now you are through with about 60% of the Capitaline Plus database. Most users are content merely to view all these pre-formatted screens, for any company they need details on. But there are some die-hard users of Capitaline Plus, who are not satisfied until they have 'explored' every nook and corner. For such intensive users, Capitaline Plus provides some extremely exciting options.
You can also create a custom-built Scoreboard in a matter of minutes, using the Capitaline Plus. A user can make his / her own aggregates like sum, average, count, min., max., etc. on industry, house, country, state or on a user-defined peer set of companies.
Capitaline Plus is a huge treasure of information. And the information that you need urgently lies tucked in somewhere out there. Don't panic. Whatever information is not readily available on the 'view' screens, can easily be called using the 'Query' modules. You have to master just a few of those tricks to create 'formulae' and tables. Then you can get any and each of your queries on companies answered to your satisfaction, neatly in rows and columns in a manner that pleases the eye and satiates the brain.
Querying in Capitaline Plus can be restricted to the existing peer sets. In another facility you can save the query output and run a new query on the same. Query output can be sorted in ascending /descending order of any field, and a ranking can be assigned on single parameter or multiple parameters. Statistical tools like minimum, maximum and standard deviation can be applied to the query output.
All this while you were dealing with historical data - a view and analysis of the past. What about the future? Capitaline Plus offers exciting options there too. You can peruse the projections made by the company itself in an offer document. Further, if you want to make your own projections based on the performance of some other companies which you feel are comparable to the one in hand, you can jolly well go ahead and do it. Capitaline Plus will guide and assist you at every step. Choose your own 'Peer Set' of companies based on the performance of which you wish to make projections. Then you can project achievable capacity utilisation, realisable market price of finished products, reasonable cost of raw materials and operating expenses, the OPM, the GPM, the NPM, and the EPS, too!
