This White Paper discusses the the impact of advanced communications tools and social networking sites, such as Twitter, blogs, LinkedIn and Facebook, on communications by public companies with regard to material information. The White Paper also covers recent amendments to the New York Stock Exchange's Immediate Release Policy and guidance issued by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on how company websites can be primary vehicles for communicating with investors without violating the SEC's Rule 10b-5 or Regulation FD.
This and other related disclosure topics affecting public companies will be discussed in a McDermott webcast entitled "Informal Corporate Disclosure in the Age of Twitter," to be held on May 21, 2009.
