    If it is public company check on yahoo finance.

    If it is a private company you are out of luck to check the financial statements, with a few exceptions. State banks have to send many reports to the state and some of these reports are available.

    Now, there are a few things you can do to check up on a business. I will give you a few suggestion on areas to look into:

    - look up any "secured" debt they have, UCC filings at county clerk office is one type

    - buy the D&B report, it lists some kinds of debt, not sure what the cheapest source is

    - look them up on BBB (it's free!)

    Otherwise, that is kinda why it's called a private business and not public. The major information on the business is mostly private.
