Regulation FD Still On

SEC Denies Request for Extension of Effective Date

By John M. Baker, Esq.

The SEC’s new Regulation FD, which is intended to prevent selective disclosures of inside information, is scheduled to go into effect on October 23, 2000.

Recently the National Investor Relations Institute requested an extension until December 29 of the regulation’s effective date.

On October 11, 2000 the SEC issued a brief letter reaffirming the original October 23, 2000 effectiveness date and reminding issuers of the staff’s availability to offer interpretive guidance, both before and after Regulation FD becomes effective.

The letter is available online at http://www.sec.gov/news/gofd.htm
