We get our transcripts from the best source there is (for transcripts): Thomson Reuters. Our transcripts data set includes all transcripts back to 2001, including both earnings transcripts as well as calls, conferences, and everything else that Thomson Reuters has available.
The vast majority of U.S.-listed (either current or formerly) public companies have transcripts. But Thomson Reuters' coverage is not 100%, and some companies are excluded either due to low market capitalization, low trading volume, or similar reasons.
We are subject to a 12-hour embargo, so the transcript for any given call or event will usually become available 12 hours after the start time of that call/event. During peak earnings season, Thomson Reuters may take slightly longer to prepare transcripts. Also, some types of transcripts, like ones from industry conference presentations, may take longer to become available due to the nature of the event. Regardless, we will have transcripts as soon as Thomson Reuters makes them available (subject to the 12 hour embargo). If you are subscribed to your Email Alerts, you will receive a notification as soon as a transcript becomes available.
While you cannot access transcripts while not subscribed, you can see what is available. Just visit any company page and click the Transcripts link on the left sidebar. On the Transcripts page you will be brought to, you will see a list of transcripts that are available for that company.
Unfortunately, some corporate subscriptions exclude access to transcripts. If you are on a corporate plan that does not have access and you would like to access transcripts, please reach out to your group head, COO, or Market Data team.
Due to the terms of our agreement with Thomson Reuters, we unfortunately cannot make transcripts available during the free trial. You can, however, end your trial early to receive full access - just click on any transcript for instructions on how to do that.
