Go Beyond Requirements

  • Associated Press
  • United Press International
  • Bloomberg
  • Dow Jones
  • Reuters
  • Two (2) New York City based newspapers
  • Two (2) daily newspapers in the company's headquarters state

Business Wire's disclosure network, included in every US geographic wire circuit distribution, includes the aforementioned disclosure media points plus:

  • Investor's Business Daily
  • Moody's Investors Service
  • OTC Markets Group
  • Standard & Poor's
  • USA Today

SEC Requirements

Business Wire enables you to quickly and easily comply with SEC rules such as Regulation Fair Disclosure and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 in the most cost-effective manner. Whether your needs require widely disseminating a material news release or filing or furnishing an EDGAR filing you can count on Business Wire and its 24/7 global compliance operations.

Issuers could meet Regulation FD's "public disclosure" requirement by filing a Form 8-K, by distributing a press release through a widely disseminated news or wire service, or by any other non-exclusionary method of disclosure that is reasonably designed to provide broad public access — such as announcement at a conference of which the public had notice and to which the public was granted access, either by personal attendance, or telephonic or electronic access.
