Telecommunications The organization of each Assistant Director office is similar. The Deputy Director and the Director oversee the entire filing review process. Required and Selective Review As required by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act ofthe Division undertakes some level of review of each reporting company at least once every three years and reviews a significant number of companies more frequently.
In addition, the Division selectively reviews transactional filings — documents companies file when they engage in public offerings, business combination transactions, and proxy solicitations.
To preserve the integrity of the selective review process, the Division does not publicly disclose the criteria it uses to identify companies and filings for review. Scope of Reviews If the Division selects a company or a filing for review, the extent of that review will depend on many factors, including the criteria set forth in Section of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the factors identified through our selective review criteria.
The scope of a review may be: When the staff identifies instances where it believes a company can improve its disclosure or enhance its compliance with the applicable disclosure requirements, it provides the company with comments. The range of Gov review comments is broad and depends on the issues that arise in a particular filing review.
The staff completes many filing reviews without issuing any comments. In addition Gov review a first level examiner, in nearly all cases a second person reviews a filing and proposed comments to help achieve consistency in comments across filing reviews.
We refer to this person as the reviewer. Staff Comments The Division views the comment process as a dialogue with a company about its disclosure. Company Response to Comments A company generally responds to each comment in a letter to the staff and, if appropriate, by amending its filings.
This comment and response process continues until the staff and the company resolve the comments. Closing a Filing Review When a company has resolved all Division comments on a Securities Act registration statement, the company may request that the Commission declare the registration statement effective so that it can proceed with the transaction.
When a company has resolved all Division comments on an Exchange Act registration statement, a periodic or current report, or a preliminary proxy statement, the Division provides the company with a letter to confirm that its review of the filing is complete. The Division makes this correspondence public no earlier than 20 business days after it has completed its review of a periodic or current report or declared a registration statement effective.
In making correspondence publicly available on the EDGAR system, the Division redacts any information subject to a Rule 83 confidential treatment request without evaluating the substance of that request. Only if and when a request is made for that information under the Freedom of Information Act does the Division undertake any substantive review of the confidential treatment request.
Reconsideration Process Division staff members, at all levels, are available to discuss disclosure and financial statement presentation matters with a company and its legal, accounting, and other advisors.
Because of the diversity of issues that may be raised in the filing review and comment process, the Division does not require companies and their representatives to follow a formal protocol in consulting with its staff or in seeking reconsideration of a staff comment. However, the following information may be helpful to companies when doing so.
If the company does not understand the comment after discussing it with the examiner, it may wish to speak to the reviewer who approved the comment before the Division issued it. To make it easier for a company to identify the appropriate people to contact about a filing review, the Division includes the names and phone numbers of the staff members involved in that review in each of its comment letters.
In any instance where the staff suggests that a company should revise its disclosure or its financial statements, the company may, and should as appropriate, provide the staff with a written explanation of why it provided the disclosure it did. In many cases, this response will resolve the comment.
If the staff indicates that it intends to reissue the comment, the company may wish to pursue reconsideration of the comment or its response before the staff does so.
In this case, the company should, after discussing the matter with the examiner, ask to speak to the reviewer of that comment letter.
If a company wishes to seek more senior level reconsideration of a matter during the filing review process, it should feel free to do so as indicated below. A request for reconsideration may be oral or written.
Legal and Textual Disclosure Matters If a company wishes to seek reconsideration of a staff comment relating to a legal issue or a textual disclosure matter, the normal course of the reconsideration process would begin with the Legal Branch Chief in the Assistant Director Office and then proceed to the Assistant Director.
A company may direct further reconsideration requests to the Deputy Director or to the Director.Transparency and accountability in Alabama state government.
