f there is a company name called DLEX, and I wanted to talk about the company financials, would I write "DLEX’ financials" or "DLEX’s financials" or "DLEXes financials"?

    The apostrophe either indicates possession or abbreviation; in this case, possession. For possession, the apostrophe ALWAYS has to go directly after the last letter of the thing doing the possessing, e.g. DLEX. Then an S ALWAYS must follow, unless the initial word ended in S anyway.

    DLEX’s is the only correct way of expressing it.

    you only need ‘es’ if you’re using it as a plural, not a possesive.
    and the apostrophe is at the end only when the word ends in an s, not any other letter.
    I hope this helps!
