Preparation and review of Forms 10-K and proxy statements this year present several new challenges.  Disclosures about the impact and uncertainties of COVID-19 must be tailored to each company’s situation.  The SEC’s continuing Disclosure Modernization and Simplification undertakings during 2020, including disclosure about human capital resources, must be implemented.  Evolving disclosure questions surrounding the impact of the transition away from LIBOR and cybersecurity will also factor into this year’s reporting process.  Please join Gary M. Brown of Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP and SEC Institute Director George M. Wilson as they discuss these and other key reporting issues.

Topics include:

  • Tailoring disclosures about COVID-19 for your company – risk factor, MD&A, executive compensation and accounting considerations – 10 Minutes
  • Details of the changes to your Form 10-K required by the SEC’s 2020 Disclosure Modernization and Simplification initiatives and other rule changes – 15 Minutes
  • SEC staff focus areas for 2020 Form 10-Ks, including non-GAAP measures and MD&A – 5 minutes
