Good Corporate Hygiene Part 2: Back to Basics


Under former Securities and Exchange Commission Chair Jay Clayton’s leadership, the SEC focused on various areas collectively termed “good corporate hygiene.” In the first of our two-part Good Corporate Hygiene webinar series, we addressed policies related to trading in a company’s stock, especially the use of Rule 10b5-1 trading plans and the use of such plans by insiders.

In the second of our two-part series, the topics we will focus on include:

  • Earnings guidance;
  • Forward-looking information;
  • The SEC’s earnings per share enforcement initiative;
  • Related person transactions (including the need for NYSE companies to review their policies in light of the recent NYSE rule change);
  • Corporate governance documents;
  • Risk assessments and disclosures, including with respect to cybersecurity and climate change;
  • Disclosure controls and procedures and internal control over financial reporting; and
  • Shareholder engagement.

CLE is not available when viewing a recording of this program. In order to receive credit you must have attended the live webinar program.
