Why Now?
"Web disclosure," as it is broadly known, allows companies to leverage their website as the primary means for providing information to investors, in compliance with federal securities laws. It gives IROs the opportunity to take full control of their company's disclosure process, achieve cost savings and obtain near real-time insight into the market impact of their information without limiting the reach or accuracy of their message. Because the SEC has provided general guidance only, it is up to companies to determine if their website disclosure model fully satisfies public disclosure requirements. Attendees will hear from companies that have moved fully to web disclosure, are evaluating whether to do so, and that have made a decision to stay with traditional disclosure practices, along with legal and "how to" insight.
Actionable Takeaway Documents
  • A white paper outlining best practices that companies can start implementing immediately to begin establishing their IR website as a primary point of disclosure.
  • Checklist for evaluating web disclosure choices and options.

Web Disclosure: High Seas or Smooth Sailing for Your Company?*
Tue - Jun, 5 | 10:30 am - 11:45 am
Location: 6B (Convention Center Level 6)
Category: Communications | Secondary Category: IR Marketing/Outreach

Companies are exploring whether to establish their website as the primary point of disclosure for disseminating information to investors. The SEC issued guidance for web disclosure in 2008 but no hard and fast rules, leaving companies on their own to determine the SEC-compliant disclosure process that best suits their needs. The panel consists of practitioner views from different places on the web disclosure continuum, combined with former SEC leadership and global services provider experiences. Together, they will provide a wide range of knowledge to help you understand how and when it may be right for your company to move to web disclosure.
