When an organization name is followed by something
related to it, would you use an apostrophe? For
example, QRS products and QRS revenues or QRS's
products and QRS's revenues.

** Pretty much either, but if the company really
does end in an S, it might be a good idea to
leave the apostrophe off in order to avoid the
debate over whether there should be another
S after the apostrophe.
