On November 5th, the SEC announced its staff is preparing Hurricane Sandy relief measures that are expected to include extensions of filing deadlines for any filing due during the period from October 29, 2012 to November 20, 2012 for publicly traded companies, investment companies, investment advisers, other persons with filing obligations, accountants, brokerage firms, and transfer agents, among others. It is anticipated that the deadline for any such filing would be extended to November 21, 2012, and the scope of the relief measures would extend to any individual and entity with a filing obligation that cannot file timely due to Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath. The staff will also consider requests for additional relief on a case-by-case basis. SEC Press Release.
