Guidance provides regulatory flexibility regarding annual meetings

Today, in light of the spread of COVID-19, the SEC announced new Corp Fin staff guidance regarding annual meetings.  Because of limitations on the ability to hold in-person annual meetings as a result of health and travel concerns, the staff guidance “provides regulatory flexibility to companies seeking to change the date and location of the meetings and use new technologies, such as ‘virtual’ shareholder meetings that avoid the need for in-person shareholder attendance, while at the same time ensuring that shareholders and other market participants are informed of any changes.”
