New CCH Book Focuses On Fair Disclosure And Insider Trading Reforms

SECs new selective disclosure requirements can turn to a new book from the
securities law experts of CCH INCORPORATED (CCH). Fair Disclosure and Insider Trading
Reform: Regulation FD, Rule 10b5-1 and Rule 10b5-2 is a one-stop reference that
includes full text of the regulations and adopting release, as well as CCHs expert
explanation of the scope and effect of the important new disclosure requirements. ($29. To
order or for more information, call 1-800-248-3248 or visit http://www.onlinestore.cch.com).
"The Securities and Exchange Commission has been interested in stemming selective
disclosure for some time, as it has been their view that this practice undermines the
integrity of the securities markets," noted book author James Hamilton, JD, LLM.
"Regulation FD provides that when a company discloses material, nonpublic
information to securities market professionals or company shareholders who may well trade
on the information, it must make public disclosure of that information. The timing of the
public disclosure depends on whether the selective disclosure was intentional or
non-intentional," explained Hamilton. "If it was intentional, the company must
make simultaneous public disclosure. If the selective disclosure was non-intentional, the
public disclosure must be made promptly."
Single Source of Complete Coverage
Fair Disclosure and Insider Trading Reform brings together in one soft-cover book
everything you need to know about the new requirements.
Ideal for corporate counsel and officers, securities attorneys and brokers, the new
desktop reference reproduces and explains the SEC reforms adopted in the Regulation FD
Release (No. 34-43154). These reforms, effective as of October 23, 2000, consist of two
measures: Regulation FD, which generally prohibits the selective disclosure of material
nonpublic company information to analysts and other persons; and new Exchange Act Rules
10b5-1 and 10b5-2, which resolve two unsettled issues in insider trading law.
Fair Disclosure and Insider Trading Reform is divided into three main parts.
