0 9

The Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) has announced the extension of the deadline for the filing of the quarterly statement for the period ending September 30, 2020, due to the recent general disruptions to business operations across the country.

In the extension, SEC grants public companies, capital market operators, and other regulated entities a 30-day grace period for the submission of their quarterly financial statements. This means that quarterly financial statements that were due to be filed by October 30, 2020, are now due for submission by Monday, November 30, 2020.

The capital market operator noted that these disruptions may have prevented public companies, capital market operators, and others from convening meetings for the purpose of considering quarterly financial statements that were due to be filed/released.
