Given that 2020 was such a tumultuous year, even the most dedicated securities lawyer may have missed a rule change or two. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) was also particularly busy. Under the leadership of SEC Chair Clayton, the SEC had one of its busiest rulemaking years in history.

This session provided a recap of the most significant rulemakings of 2020, covering the following:

  • Financial Disclosures About Guarantors and Issuers of Guaranteed Securities
  • Securities Offering Reform for BDCs and Closed-End Funds

  • Amendments to the Exempt Offering Framework
  • Modernization of Regulation S-K Items 101, 103 and 105
  • Amendments to MD&A
  • Modernization of Shareholder Proposal Rules/14a-8

After this session, attendees would:
