Investor Relations Marketing Services

"If your company already has a website, you may not need to create a separate investor relations site."

SEC Compliance Without Complications

A website that complies with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is a critical piece of marketing infrastructure for companies that are currently listed or wish to be listed on a major stock exchange. Unbeknownst to many of these firms, a brand-new or separately hosted website is not necessarily required to comply with SEC regulations. Growth Squad offers an efficient and cost-effective solution that integrates with a firm’s current WordPress website while maintaining SEC and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance.

The Importance of SEC Compliance for Websites

The SEC has a very stringent set of standards for how publicly traded companies manage the distribution of corporate information.

A publicly listed company’s investor relations webpage is required to follow specific disclosure and content guidelines set by the SEC. Publicly traded companies need to follow these guidelines diligently, as the SEC actively pursues noncompliant cases, and any oversights may be costly. 

Required disclosures must be posted on the company’s website in a timely manner and in an easily accessible format. The SEC shares disclosures using the XML-based eXtensible Business Reporting Language, or XBRL. XBRL is used because it allows businesses to easily communicate financial information and automate processes. The benefit of having XBRL is in the fact that analysts use XBRL for their financial models.

Examples of documents required by the SEC and stock exchanges for website compliance include but are not limited to:

  • Section 16 filings: These have to be posted on the company’s website no later than the end of the business day on which the form was filed with the SEC. Filings must remain on your website for at least one year.
  • Annual and quarterly reports: This is not required, however they are expected by investors to be presented on the website.
  • Governance library and committee charters: These include the company’s code of ethics, audit committee, and governance compensation.
  • Whistleblower policy: You must also include your whistleblower policy.
