New CCH Book Focuses On Fair Disclosure And Insider Trading Reforms

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., November 13, 2000) – Securities professionals, as well as corporate officers and counsel, looking for clear and complete coverage of the SEC’s 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 CCH’s 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

"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.

  • Part I: Offers detailed explanation of Regulation FD and the new insider trading rules, including discussion of their scope, content, rationale and consequences. Topics covered include:
