SEC Staff Releases Interpretive Guidance
for Regulation FD
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission's Division of Corporation Finance today supplemented its Telephone Interpretations Manual to include some frequently asked questions about the Commission's new Regulation FD. Regulation FD was adopted by the Commission on August 10, 2000, and will become effective on October 23, 2000. The new supplement may be found, along with the Telephone Interpretations Manual and earlier supplements, on the SEC's website (www.sec.gov) at Current SEC Rulemaking/Other Commission Notices and Information.
The telephone interpretations include responses to questions given by members of the staff, are informal in nature, and do not necessarily represent the views of the Commission. As the staff receives additional questions concerning Regulation FD, it may add to or revise the interpretations. Anyone with a question concerning Regulation FD or the supplement should call the Division of Corporation Finance's Office of Chief Counsel at (202) 942-2900.
