Important Ways the SEC has Simplified Reporting Requirements


Sullivan & Worcester will host and sponsor the ACC Northeast’s program, “Important Ways the SEC has Simplified Reporting Requirements,” on September 12, 2019 in Boston. Howard Berkenblit and Jeff Morlend will speak on the panel with Nina Andersson-Willard, Vice President, Senior Counsel, M&A and Securities at Iron Mountain.

Over the past year, the SEC has been making a concerted effort to simplify its disclosure rules and regulations, but what are the key takeaways to these adjustments? The panel will cover the changes that impact all public companies or companies thinking of going public, including changes to forms and what can now be eliminated from filings, but also a few additional new requirements. The speakers will also review other recent SEC developments and current issues on their agenda including:

  • Disclosure simplifications;
  • Changes to definitions of smaller reporting company and accelerated filer;
  • Accounting updates for lawyers: Proposed changes for Regulation S-X financial statement requirements; critical audit matters; concept release on quarterly reporting; and,
  • Other SEC hot topics – risk factors (cyber, LIBOR, Brexit et al); exclusive forum, arbitration clauses; Regulation G; proxy reform; S-8/Rule 701.
