This Baker Tilly Municipal Advisors’ webinar will discuss an overview of Continuing Disclosure, the Rule, and the responsibilities that come with it.
Municipal issuers of bonds that have been purchased by an underwriter and reoffered are subject to market disclosure responsibilities pursuant to SEC Rule 15c2-12 (the “Rule”). These responsibilities and reporting obligations span the life of the bonds or as long as the bonds remain outstanding. Failure to comply with these reporting obligations could pose risks to both the issuer and its officials, as the SEC seeks to obtain legislative authority over continuing disclosure standards.
Additionally, underwriters must be able to demonstrate they have a “reasonable basis” for the belief that an issuer will comply with its continuing disclosure requirements. If the issuer does not demonstrate prior compliance to the market, the marketability of its future financings could be impacted as well.
Executive and fiscal officers, elected and appointed officials, and other employees for issuers of municipal bonds.
