Overview

The Regulation of Corporate Disclosure, Third Edition is a complete and up-to-date handbook on the issue of corporate disclosure, covering the impact of the federal securities laws on both informal communications and the process of communicating with shareholders.

The Third Edition expands topics previously covered, addressing the legal issues and practical concerns surrounding implementation of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010. The book also has an in-depth treatment of management’s discussion and analysis (MD&A), something that, although appearing in required SEC filings, involves many of the same difficult and complex issues raised by the informal disclosure process. Also addressed are: SEC reforms of the periodic reporting process; issues pertaining to stock research analysts and conflicts of interest; and various relevant corporate governance requirements and their disclosure implications.

Critical areas analyzed include:

• Disclosure requirements and anti-fraud provisions
• The duty to disclose
• Dissemination
• Issues involving materiality
• Disclosure of bad news
• Negotiations
• Dealing with analysts
• And much more!
