ABSTRACT
The article discusses regulation FD promulgated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). FD requires that firms disclose material information to both analysts and the general public simultaneously. A poll of over 200 public companies in the U.S. conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP found that 88% of participants support FD, and 75% said FD exerted little impact on their firms' share prices. Robert G. Eccles of Advisory Capital Partners notes that many of the dire prophecies about FD have failed to materialize.
