The Securities and Exchange Commission announced today that its Advisory Committee on Small and Emerging Companies will meet on Wednesday, February 1, beginning at 10 a.m. EST.
The meeting will be held at the SEC’s headquarters at 100 F Street, N.E., Washington, D.C., and is open to the public, with seating on a first-come, first-served basis. It also will be webcast live on the SEC’s website, www.sec.gov, and archived for later viewing.
The committee will discuss potential recommendations to the Commission on issues relevant to small and emerging companies and hear presentations on the report of the IPO Task Force, “Rebuilding the IPO On-Ramp,” which was presented to the U.S. Department of the Treasury in October 2011.
The Advisory Committee was formed last year to provide a formal mechanism for the SEC to receive advice and recommendations on privately held small businesses and publicly traded companies with a market capitalization less than $250 million.
