Seminar Will Look At SEC ScrutinyOf Periodic Corporate Filings

Tuesday, June 1, 2004 - 01:00



The Sarbanes-Oxley Act requires the SEC to review your company's periodic filings at least once every three years. How worried should you be about this "new" level of heightened scrutiny?


The firm of Lowenstein Sandler PC will attempt to answer this question on Thursday, June 10 at a seminar titled Public Companies Beware: The SEC Is Reviewing Your Filings.


This program will provide CEOs, CFOs and general counsel of public companies and companies considering going public with the inside track on what the SEC is reviewing and best practices to protect their companies.


Speakers will be Peter H. Ehernberg, Laura R. Kuntz and Anthony O. Pergola, all Lowenstein Sandler, and Jack Kaye and Christine Davine, Deloitte & Touche. Some of the questions they will address include:


•What will the SEC look for when reviewing my 10-K and other periodic reports?


•How should I revise my MD&A to comply with the SEC's recent guidance?


•Will following the SEC's guidance increase my liability as a director or officer?


•What changes should my company be implementing to facilitate and improve financial disclosures?


The dinner program will begin at 6 p.m. at the Lowenstein Sandler offices, 65 Livingston Avenue, Roseland, NJ, preceded by a networking session starting at 5:30 p.m.
