Hurricane Ida: SEC Monitoring Impact on Filers

As the number of people and businesses impacted by Hurricane Ida’s devastation continues to grow, it’s worth noting that earlier this week, the SEC issued a press release announcing that it was monitoring the situation and that the Staff will evaluate the appropriateness of providing regulatory relief for those affected by the storm. In 2018, the SEC issued an order granting relief from filing deadlines for companies unable to make their filings as a result of Hurricane Florence. At this point, there’s been no word from the SEC as to whether such relief will be provided here.
