Client Alert

On June 18, 2015, the Securities and Exchange Commission issued cease-and-desist orders to 36 underwriting firms in response to voluntary self-reporting of potential misrepresentations in municipal bond offering documents regarding compliance by issuers with prior disclosure obligations under the SEC’s Municipalities Continuing Disclosure Cooperation initiative. The MCDC initiative offered underwriters and issuers the opportunity to self-report potential violations during the past five years in exchange for more lenient settlements than would otherwise be available for violations which were not self-reported. Our Client Alert on the MCDC initiative can be found here.
