December 21, 2018 - Government Shutdown

SEC Division of Corporation Finance Guidance for a Potential Government Shutdown

DefenseThe SEC’s Division of Corporation Finance has posted information about its anticipated operations in the event of a government shutdown. The SEC will be closed on December 24th and 25th in observance of the holiday. No EDGAR filings will be accepted those days, as is the case on any Federal holiday.

In the event that legislation funding the government is not enacted and a government shutdown occurs, the SEC anticipates that it will remain fully operational for a limited number of days beyond the start of the government shutdown. While open during this time period, the SEC will conduct ordinary business. The SEC will try to provide advance notice of when its operations will cease due to the shutdown. EDGAR will continue to accept registration statements, offering statements and any other required filings, regardless of the SEC’s operating status.
