Fast, Efficient EDGAR Filings In HTML With EDGAR Ease+

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., September 26, 2002) Ė With SEC filing deadlines becoming ever more stringent, filers no longer have the time for tedious hand-coding and hours of wrestling tables into shape, according to CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of securities law information and compliance tools. To slash filing time and provide an integrated solution for preparing and filing EDGAR documents in HTML, CCH has introduced EDGAR Ease+TM, the fastest, most efficient way to create SEC filings in what is becoming the SECís preferred format. For more information, call 888-89-EDGAR or visit the web site at Those attending the annual NASPP conference in Las Vegas, September 29 to October 2, can see EDGAR Ease+ at booth 410.

EDGAR Ease+ lets users complete EDGAR filings, convert them to an HTML format and transmit the filing to the SEC in a single package. Building from the CCH EDGAR Ease software, this new package adds automation and formatting tools at every turn and provides a complete environment for importing documents, editing and formatting them, checking for errors and transmitting finished documents to the SEC without ever leaving the program.

"The SEC is moving toward an HTML standard for EDGAR filings. EDGAR Ease+ is a quick and simple filing solution for companies who want to be ready when HTML becomes the official filing format," said Peter Berkery, Associate Publisher of the CCH Securities Group. This software also helps companies comply with the new SEC mandate that requires publicly held companies to post quarterly and annual filings on their web sites.

EDGAR Ease+ imports and converts documents created in Word, Wordperfect, Excel, Pagemaker, QuarkXPress and other popular wordprocessing, spreadsheet and desktop publishing applications. Powerful editing and formatting tools allow users to quickly and accurately fine-tune tables, lists and rules. Images can be added with a few clicks of a mouse, and graphic editing software can be launched from inside EDGAR Ease + to resize or tweak images for optimal presentation.

Since EDGAR Ease + is made specifically for SEC filings, users can be confident that the HTML code used will conform to SEC specifications. Extensive error-checking guarantees accuracy of both form and content, and test filings can be submitted to catch errors that can only be detected in the SECís EDGAR database.

Public companies of all sizes will benefit from this one-of-a-kind software by reducing valuable time spent converting documents, or reducing the costs of outsourcing the tedious task.

With the November 4 foreign filing mandate around the corner, international companies will be pleased to know that EDGAR Ease+ files Forms 20F and 6K. EDGAR Ease+ also files Form 4, facilitating usersí compliance with the new SEC rule requiring insiders to file a Form 4 within two business days. And, all EDGAR Ease+ users benefit from automatic updating, so you are certain to keep current with securities law requirements.

Availability and Pricing

A one-year license for EDGAR Ease+ is $2,795. A $300 discount is available for current CCH customers who purchase EDGAR Ease + before the end of the year. For more information, call 888-89-EDGAR, visit the web site at, or stop by the CCH booth (410) at the NASPP convention in Las Vegas.
