SEC Amendments to Accelerated and Large Accelerated Filer Definitions Become Effective

Today, final amendments to the definitions of “accelerated filer” and “large accelerated filer” under Rule 12b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 became effective. The SEC adopted the final rule implementing the amendments on March 12, 2020.

The amendments are designed to reduce the number of issuers that qualify as accelerated and large accelerated filers, thereby promoting capital formation for certain smaller reporting companies by reducing compliance costs while still maintaining investor protections.
