10-Q is a report filed quarterly to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) by most reporting companies. It includes unaudited financial statements and provides a continuing view of the companys financial position during the year. The report must be filed for each of the first three fiscal quarters of the companys fiscal year and is due within 45 days of the close of the quarter.

INCURRED BUT NOT REPORTED (IBNR), in insurance, losses occurring over a specified period that have not been reported to the insurer. IBNR losses are often calculated as a percentage of claims paid and claims outstanding and are reported in an insurers annual report. Reinsurers establish IBNR reserves as a part of their rating plans under a facultative reinsurance treaty, lest an overly optimistic view of treaty results lead to further under-rating on a book of business. Example: Product liability losses are seldom reported during a policy year. This "tail" of claims will upset any rating plan, unless an IBNR reserve is established and factored into the profit picture.
