On March 20th, the SEC adopted amendments to modernize and simplify disclosure requirements in Regulation S-K for public companies, investment advisers, and investment companies. Like previous amendments, these changes are consistent with the SEC’s mandate under the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act and are based on recommendations in the staff’s FAST Act Report and a broader review of the SEC’s disclosure rules. These changes are expected to benefit investors through eliminating outdated and unnecessary disclosure while improving the readability and navigability of company disclosures. They should also reduce repetition and the disclosure of irrelevant and immaterial information. In addition, these amendments are expected to reduce costs and burdens on registrants.
