Staff of the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA Staff) released a staff notice today summarizing the results of their continuous disclosure review program for the 2009 fiscal year. During fiscal 2009, which ended March 31, CSA Staff completed 1,094 continuous disclosure reviews of reporting issuers other than investment funds, a 28% increase from the last fiscal year. CSA Staff noted that the deficiencies in continuous disclosure were generally in either the Management's Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) or financial statements and provided highlights of some of the more common deficiencies. Review outcomes were categorized and 48% of outcomes fell into the "prospective changes" category, which required the issuer to make changes in its next filing as a result of identified deficiencies. CSA Staff also identified areas of focus for the next fiscal year, including notably, disclosures of IFRS changeover plans in the MD&A.
