Sarah Hewitt and Janet Tasigianis have published a new client alert, “COVID-19 and New Disclosure Considerations for Public Companies.” The alert states in part:
Many publicly traded companies across business sectors are currently, or could be, materially impacted by COVID-19. In addition to the standard considerations for disclosure and reporting, the uncertainties presented by COVID-19 pose additional challenges for affected businesses. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) has recently issued several policy statements related to these issues. Companies should closely monitor these fast-moving developments and carefully consider the best approach for handling disclosure and reporting responsibilities.
