On October 17, 2018, Reuters published an article that discusses how the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) said in a notice that it will consider seeking public comment on ways to ease the quarterly reporting burden on publicly listed companies.

However, SEC Chairman Jay Clayton, a Trump appointee, last week told an audience in Washington that the regulator was in no rush to change quarterly reporting requirements for large publicly-traded companies.

“I don’t think quarterly reporting is going to change for our top names anytime soon,” said Clayton. But he said the SEC could study the disclosure requirements for smaller firms.

Review the full article on Reuter's website, an article on Cooley PubCo's webiste and the latest “Reg Flex Agenda”, which indicates that a proposal for semi-annual reporting is forthcoming.
