On June 26, 2020, the SEC issued an update regarding its efforts responding to COVID-19, which included an announcement that the 45-day grace period regarding certain public company filings due on or before July 1, 2020 would not be extended. The SEC’s decision was based on the recommendation by the Division of Corporation Finance that any further extension would be “unnecessary” due to the implementation of “business continuity plans” by market participants, which included a shift “to a more remote and distributed workforce.”
For more information, the entire SEC update, titled An Update on the Commission’s Targeted Regulatory Relief to Assist Market Participants Affected by COVID-19 and Ensure the Orderly Function of our Markets, can be found here.
