Non-GAAP Financial Measures: Clarification on What Constitutes Individually Tailored Accounting Principles
Comments from the SEC on non-GAAP financial measures continue to lead the way in 2018. At the recent 2018 AICPA Conference on Current SEC and PCAOB Developments the SEC staff (the “staff”) emphasized that investors and creditors expect publicly reported information to be accurate, complete and in compliance with all applicable rules and regulations. Specifically, the staff highlighted two areas of focus: adherence to Compliance and Disclosure Interpretations (“C&DIs”) as well as the importance of controls and processes when disclosing non-GAAP financial measures.
The SEC is required to review the filings of public companies at least once every three years, with many companies selected for review more frequently. Comments from those reviews are largely based on a registrant’s disclosures and other publicly available information, including press releases, analyst calls and information on the registrant’s website. However, non-public information such as whistleblower tips and PCAOB inspection reports can also be considered.
