Event Synopsis:
On June 28, 2018, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) released final rules on Smaller Reporting Companies (SRC), modifying its definition and increasing the threshold for qualifying as SRC. Thus, giving newly qualified SRCs the opportunity to take advantage of the SEC’s less stringent scaled disclosure standards.

Concurrently, the SEC released the ruling for the mandatory adoption of inline eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL), thus, embedding XBRL data directly to the SEC filing. This makes validation, aggregation and analysis of the filing easier.

With these new and revised rulings, companies and their counsels must keep themselves updated with the recent amendments and requirements to ensure compliance in this evolving regulatory landscape.

In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will help companies understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of SEC’s new SRC and XBRL rules. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing effective compliance strategies for these rules.

Key topics include:
• New SRC Ruling: What is it and How Does It Affect You
• SRC Thresholds
• Accelerated and Large Accelerated Filer Definitions Revisions
• Inline XBRL Adoption: Exploring the Nooks and Crannies
• Regulatory Issues
• Best Compliance Strategies and Practices
