NEW YORK's R.R. Donnelly Financial and IPO Crossroads of San Francisco have announced the launch of an Internet-based IPO Prospectus Service, which the companies describes as an online subscription service offering a comprehensive database of the last three years of initial public offering documents.

The companies say that the new service is designed as a "one stop" service for lawyers and investment bankers who require fast and easy access to a highly searchable database of prospectuses for U.S. companies. The service uses Adobe PDF (Portable Document Format) so that the integrity of the original IPO document remains intact and is faithfully preserved, according to the companies, including the layout, pagination, graphics, tables and charts.

The new IPO service also provides two quick-scan options, including a synopsis of every IPO and the ability to download only the cover page of the document, say the companies. The entire IPO document is also available at the site, they add.
