Informal Corporate Disclosure Under Federal Securities Law, 2009 Edition
examines the regulation of informal disclosure -- e.g., press releases,
speeches, analyst conference calls, webcasts, and investor roadshows -- as
distinguished from formal, highly structured disclosure in SEC filings. The
coverage includes discussion of federal securities law, rules and court
decisions; self-regulatory organization rules for listed companies, and
standards of practice prescribed by the National Investor Relations
Institute (NIRI).
This updated 2009 Edition includes:
discussion of the SEC's recent guidance on the use of company web sites,
including advice on the sufficiency of web site disclosure as a means of
dissemination under Regulation FD (see 1002)
liability for hyperlinks to third-party information (see 1003)
issues presented by the use of summaries and overviews (see 1004)
concerns related to blogs and online discussion forums (see 1009)
The new 2009 Edition also examines materiality principles
governing quantitative financial disclosures, specifically the recommendations
of the SEC Advisory Committee on Improvements to Financial Reporting,
or CIFiR (see 403 and 1102). In addition, the work covers recent
SEC Compliance and Disclosure Interpretations on the Form 8-K reporting
obligation triggered by disclosure of certain financial information (see
1105). Finally, the 2009 Edition includes discussion of
new NIRI standards for quarterly earnings releases (see 1103), the
text of selected portions of those standards (see Appendix), and a timeline
for preparing an earnings release (see Appendix).
