Corp Fin to Republish Certain Exchange Act and Securities Act Orders in EDGAR

The SEC’s Division of Corporation Finance has announced that it will publish Exchange Act revocation of registration orders and Securities Act stop orders on EDGAR beginning April 19, 2012. Revocations are made pursuant to Exchange Act Section 12(j), whereas stop orders are made under Securities Act Section 8. The notice observed that by publishing these orders on EDGAR, investors can view the orders in the context of a company’s filing history.
