Mandated by the Securities Act of 1933, Regulation S-K dictates the reporting requirements for various Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings used by public companies. Regulation S-K applies to SEC Form S-1, which is the registration statement companies file with the SEC during their IPO. It also applies to the ongoing reporting requirements in documents such as Forms 10-K and 8-K.
Regulation S-K also applies to annual or other reports, going-private transaction statements, tender offers, proxy statements, and any other required filings under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Regulation S-K works in concert with other rules and regulations that companies must comply with when filing with the SEC.
