Historical Note

As a publicly traded company, the Burroughs Corporation was required to report financial data to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Burroughs filed quarterly (Form 10-Q) and annual (Form 10-K) reports, which summarized financial information about the company and the business it did during the past quarter or year. Burroughs filed S4 forms in 1986, to register "securities issued in business combination transactions." The 1986 S4 filings were required as a result of the merger with the Sperry Corporation.

Burroughs also created and collected information related to the performance of the company's stock.
