From a collector's standpoint, one of the most interesting aspects of the Marvel Comic's Board of Directors taking the comicbook company public in 1991 was that when the company began issuing quarterly and annual reports, those reports (unlike similar reports of other publicly-traded companies) were issued in the form of comicbooks. These comicbooks/reports have since become collectible items on their own.
1995 Third Quarter Report
Sep 1995 : SM Article
Summary: Spider-Man Cameo
This is another of Marvel's Quarterly reports. This is a four-page, card stock report produced spouting facts and figures about the company.
This four-page mid-year report contains information about Marvels business dealings thus far in 1995. There is just one image of Spider-Man in this report, and Silver Surfer on the cover.
This one is not so much fun as it really doesn't contain much Spidey (or comics).
Only shareholders were entitled to receive quarterly reports so it is a fair bet that most of them got tossed. However, anyone (shareholder or not) could request an annual report, so it is possible that there are more of them available. However, it is not known how many quarterly reports were published.
