To assist public companies with their securities compliance obligations, Goodwin’s Public Company Advisory Practice has prepared a Form 10-K Compliance Checklist and Form 10-K Compliance Guide. Form 10-Ks are one of the most important disclosure documents that companies file with the SEC. It is absolutely critical that a company tell its story about the business while also ensuring that they adhere to the various legal requirements. To this end, we have prepared a Form 10-K Checklist and Guide.
Some of the topics covered in the Checklist and Guide include the following:
- Trending Disclosure Topics (COVID-19, ESG, Human Capital, and Cybersecurity)
- SEC Rule Changes (Selected Financial Data, MD&A, New Item 9.C)
- Technical Compliance Matters (Practice Tips for Complying with Various Disclosure Requirements)
- Business Updates (Best Approach to Updating the 10-K for Business Developments)
