Heads Up — SEC proposes to ease qualifications for nonaccelerated filer status

Published on: May 14, 2019

This Heads Up discusses the SEC’s recently issued proposed rule Amendments to the "Accelerated Filer and Large Accelerated Filer Definitions," which would revise the definitions of “accelerated filer” and “large accelerated filer” to exclude any issuer with both annual revenues of less than $100 million and public float of less than $700 million. The proposed amendments would expand the number of issuers that qualify as nonaccelerated filers and are thus eligible to take advantage of certain reporting accommodations offered to such issuers.
