Additional Form 8-K disclosure requirements, acceleration of filing date.
Also in mid-June, the SEC proposed to add 11 new items that would
require a company to file Form 8-K under the Securities Exchange Act of
1934. In addition, the SEC proposed to move two disclosure items
currently required to be included in companies' annual and
quarterly reports to Form 8-K and to amend several of the existing Form
8-K disclosure items. The commission also proposed to shorten the filing
deadline for Forms 8-K to two business days after an event triggering
the form's disclosure requirements. Comments are due Aug. 26.
