Company sales information

I was curious if anyone knows of a site that has sales numbers for snowboards and related merchandise. For instance, I'm looking to find out how many boards Bataleon makes per year without having to call or contact the company direct.

if they are a private company - and i believe bataleon is - they may not tell you, even if you ask.

Bataleon

I think they are private. That means that even if they tell you, it might not be true ;-)

Good luck getting that company info no company will give that out, you'd be really surprised at how much companies actually sell.

Hell...McDonalds use to post how many burgers they've sold up on their signs, why would this be such a secret.

A private company doesn't have to release that info so good luck getting it.

Don't go where the road leads, rather go where this is no road and make a trail.

The best you'll get are rough estimates. They might say anything from hundreds to thousands which isn't very descriptive at all. A major reason for this is marketing. So many companies utilize inventory as part of their marketing efforts. Look at the video game console fiasco. How hard was it for you to obtain a PS3 or Nintendo Wii the first year they were out? Do you honestly believe a company as big as Sony or Nintendo can't meet production demands? Highly unlikely. They let people sit there and dream about owning their console because this drives the demand up way high and it ends up being all they talk about which creates word of mouth.

Another reason companies like to hide actual figures is because nobody likes to share profit information. How do they know that you have innocent intents?

However, publicly traded companies are quite different. They are required to share their information so share holders are kept in the loop. Even then, they have strategies such as the above Sony/Nintendo examples. "Oh, we can't meet production demands. We can only make one million consoles this year."

Because McDonalds sold a f***ton of hamburgers... it was a marketing tool (i.e. we sold this many burgers, they must be good! )
If you ask some companies (especially now with the crappy economy), the answer may be something they're not too proud of...
