Exchange Act Registration and Filing
Many public companies are subject to the reporting requirements of the 1934 Securities Exchange Act (“Exchange Act”). These requirements may be triggered by exchange listings, size thresholds, and whether they have registered securities under Section 12(b) or 12(g) of the Exchange Act. If you have questions as to whether you may fall under these requirements, or need help in acquiring the necessary filing codes, feel free to contact us.
As a reporting company, you are required to submit your SEC filings electronically through the EDGAR (Electronic Data-Gathering, Analysis and Retrieval) system. Our filing calendar can keep you organized and help you determine when relevant deadlines are approaching.
