Research Strategy

There’s no publicly available information on the revenue of Standale Home Studio. Standale Home Studio is the interior design division of Standale Lumber. The company is privately-held and does not disclose its financials, and there’s no available record of the company’s annual reports after searching through the company’s website, SEC filings and annualreports.com. Then, we combed through business databases to provide an estimated revenue of the company; we searched databases such as ZoomInfo, Crunchbase, Hoovers, Datafox, Craft, Owler, among others. Standale Home Studio wasn’t listed in any of the databases; hence, this strategy failed as we couldn’t locate the financials of the company. We also searched for interviews by the leadership of the company and mentions of the company on media sites. The goal was to determine the per cent composition of the company in the parent company, Standale Lumber to use in calculating the revenue of Standale Home Studio. After combing through several sources, there was no recent interview by the leadership of the company and mentions of the company in the press. We concluded that Standale Home Studio revenue is not made publicly available by the parent company, Standale Lumber.
