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.
