Challenge

As a REIT, LTC has highly dynamic financial reporting. A significant portion of each SEC filing contains new information and disclosures, making the preparation of filings time-consuming and complex. In addition to timing challenges, LTC was using a time-consuming process of updating their financial information that often did not align as expected and formatting the final document was a continual challenge.

Solution and Results.

LTC selected Merrill Bridge as the solution that would give control over the reporting process, the flexibility to make last-minute changes and the ability to add updates in Word and Excel that automatically render in the SEC filing document (EDGAR). Their team identified six key ways using Merrill Bridge has a positive impact on their SEC reporting process:

  • Linking features make the process quick and easy
  • Using Merrill Bridge for the Proxy Statement
  • Leveraging the linking of Excel data
  • Increased control of the document management process
  • Simplified process of rolling forward from one quarter to the next
  • Access to deep subject matter expertise.
