This paper describes work carried out in the European project MONNET which deals in part with the extraction of company data from stock exchange pages and its representation in a semantic repository on which inferences and queries are carried out. The special focus of the paper lies on the construction of an integrated ontology MFO - the MONNET Financial Ontology - that has been constructed from several independent ontologies which are brought together by an interface specification, expressed in OWL.
