Changing Regulations
The proposed rule amendments would modernize and simplify the description of business (Item 101), legal proceedings (Item 103), and risk factor disclosures (Item 105) that registrants are required to make pursuant to Regulation S-K. The primary effects of the proposed amendments would be to: (1) increase the flexibility for an entity when providing disclosure regarding its business, including its general business development, so that it can tailor its disclosure to its particular circumstances; (2) eliminate or reduce disclosure about matters that are not material to an understanding of the business or to an entity’s legal proceedings; and (3) encourage risk factor disclosure that is shorter and concerns only material risks. As a result of these effects, we expect that the impact of the rule proposal would be a modest reduction in the paperwork burden of affected entities. For purposes of the PRA, we estimate that, for Form F-4, the proposed amendments would result in a reduction of 29 burden hours and a reduction in the cost burden of $35,200 for the services of outside professionals.
