Regulators are demanding that companies bare their souls before the public. They have stripped back the veils of confidentiality surrounding company finances, executive remuneration and business strategy. Today, if a company becomes aware of information that may influence its share price, it must tell the market immediately. The management of disclosure is causing problems for directors, managers and investors. What impact will disclosure have on your share price? How do you stop information from leaking, and what should you do when it does? What information can you give to individual analysts or investors? How do you meet the guidelines without giving too much away to the competition? How should companies respond to new demands for disclosure of environmental and social impacts?
