NYSE Amends Rules to Require Semi-Annual Reporting of Unaudited Financial Information by Foreign Private Issuers
17 March 2016SEC Update
On February 19, the SEC approved amendments to the New York Stock Exchange Listed Company Manual to require foreign private issuers listed on the NYSE to submit to the SEC semi-annual unaudited financial information on Form 6-K. U.S. domestic issuers are required to file with the SEC quarterly reports on Form 10-Q containing unaudited quarterly financial information after the end of each of their first three fiscal quarters. Until the new rule changes, NYSE-listed foreign private issuers were not subject to express interim financial disclosure requirements. The amendments align the NYSE’s approach to this aspect of financial disclosure by foreign private issuers with the requirements of the Nasdaq Stock Market set forth in Rule 5250(c)(2) of its marketplace rules.
