  • SEC (US Securities and Exchange Commission) (dark gray) Image

17 Jan 2010

The staff of the US Securities and Exchange Commission has issued Compliance and Disclosure Interpretations (C&DIs) on disclosure of non-GAAP financial measures.

Among other things, the new guidance clarifies that the SEC does not discourage registrants from disclosing non-GAAP financial measures in filings with the SEC. For example, one of the new Q&A clarifies that there is no prohibition against disclosing a non-GAAP financial measure that is not used by management in managing its business.
