I am trying to find the profitability of a specific brand (I'm
interested in purchasing this company). However I am having trouble
finding any financial information on the brand itself. The brand is
owned by a larger company who owns many other brands. So they don't
file a seperate financial analysis for each brand as far as I can
tell. How do I find this information?

I don't want to discuss specifics of the brand. I just want to
determine where I can locate information of this sort.

Where I started:
 - I checked LexisNexus, but they only seem to have info on the parent company.
 - I've checked EDGAR (SEC filings and forms)

I'm not saying that these places don't have the information I'm
looking for. I'm just saying I can't find it.

Company A owns:
 - Brand 1
 - Brand 2
 - Brand 3

Company A submits financial statements that summarize earnings, taxes,
profits, etc...

Where can I get a breakdown of the financial info for Brand 2?

Being that the answer to this question is probably a small list of
websites I haven't set the price very high. If you feel this is unfair
please let me know.
There is no answer at this time.

Specifics on a particular brand are usually closely-guarded secret. 
You could probably bribe someone in the accounting/finance dept. of
the company, but that would be ILLEGAL.

Not quite sure how that qualifies as information...but thanks for the
effort I guess.

To clarify...I'd like to do all of this legally...

If you would like to buy the brand; tell the company and they can
furnish you the information.  They will likely have you sign a
confidentiality agreement and sow that you have the ability to

Theyhave no reason not to share the information with someone who could
make a bonafide offer.
