New publication available for download

Governance Institute of Australia has released a new publication, Continuous Disclosure: listed and other disclosing entities. It provides an invaluable guide to the essentials of continuous disclosure and particularly what it involves in practice.

Listed entities have had obligations to disclose information to the market for many years. Continuous disclosure is a cornerstone of Australia’s system of fair, open and efficient capital markets. It is essential to ensuring that all markets are fully and equally informed.

There are also obligations that apply to certain non-listed entities and it is important to know how and when these apply.

There have been numerous amendments to the regime in recent years. Increasingly high standards of disclosure are demanded by the Corporations Act 2001, particularly as interpreted in a series of court cases.

While the compliance requirements are by definition very serious, they need not hamstring an entity’s operations. This publication is essential reading for officers, directors and senior executives of companies.

They are the individuals whose knowledge, actions and decisions are vitally important to ensuring compliance with disclosure obligations.
