SEC Improves Financial Disclosure Requirements for Acquisitions and Dispositions
On May 21, 2020, the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") adopted amendments to its financial disclosure requirements related to acquisitions and dispositions. These amendments streamline and eliminate immaterial disclosure requirements relating to acquisitions and dispositions and are designed to reduce the complexity and compliance costs associated with existing requirements. The amendments are effective January 1, 2021, but issuers may voluntarily choose to comply with the new rules in lieu of the current rules in advance of the effective date.
