Corporate Insiders Individually Charged for Failing to Update SEC Filings

While we all understand that registered individuals rely on their firms to update their required filings, so do corporate officers and shareholders. The problem is that the individuals are still personally responsible for the updates - and for failing to update.

A reminder from the SEC, as it has charged eight officers, directors, or major shareholders for failing to update their stock ownership disclosures to reflect material changes, including steps to take the companies private.

Each of the respondents, without admitting or denying the SEC’s allegations, agreed to settle the proceedings by paying a financial penalty.
