|Because not all companies have the same fiscal year end, we, in cooperation with I/B/E/S, use FY1, FY2, etc., to identify unique fiscal periods for forecast data. For comparison purposes, I/B/E/S rounds off the quarter end dates to the nearest month end.
The following is a description of how this labeling works:
FY = fiscal year
Q = quarter
SAN = semiannual
The most recently reported earnings number is denoted with a zero (0). Then, the first estimate year is denoted with a one (1), the year after that, a two (2), and so on. So, as an example, if FY0 corresponds to the December 96 year end reported, then FY1 data refers to estimates for December 97, FY2 refers to estimates for the December 98 year end, and so on. Use the same conventions for interim periods (quarter and semiannual).
