As discussed in our recent client alert “SEC Issues Important Non-GAAP Interpretations” (May 19, 2016), the SEC recently released a series of new C&DIs on the use of non-GAAP financial measures by reporting companies and new SEC registrants in public communications and SEC filings. These C&DIs were published after most public companies had completed their reporting and disclosure process for the quarter ended March 31. As a result, most companies will be considering the Staff’s interpretive views reflected in the new C&DIs for the first time when they prepare their earnings releases, SEC reports and other public disclosure materials for the fiscal quarter (or year) ending June 30.
