These databases will contain reports that give overviews to the structure, financials, markets, and other information about major businesses. 

In LexisNexis, click the Get Company Info box on the bottom right of the main page rather than using the central search bar. It will bring up the ability to search for companies by name or ticker. There will also be a link to the Company Dossier page that gives you other search options, such as finding companies by industry.
