Site Sufficient

Eight long years after the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) issued its last comprehensive guidance on how a company may use its Web site to disclose information and communicate with investors, the Commission has issued an updated interpretive release. The release, which took effect Aug. 7, takes into account technological advances and Internet usage growth.

"The new release affects so many companies, including New York Stock Exchange-listed companies required to maintain Web sites, companies that choose to use their sites to satisfy SEC disclosure requirements, and companies that maintain sites for a variety of marketing or investor relations matters," says Laura Richman, counsel at Mayer Brown.
