Is it okay to say, "I would like to know your company and factory's outline."?

Does the above sound unnatural? Do I have to say, "I would like to know the outline of your company and factory."?

    I would SAY A and B's, but probably WRITE your second sentence, to avoid the problem. A's and B's is obviously grammatically correct, but to me it sounds pedantic to say it that way.

    I think 'an outline' would be better than 'the outline'.
