Financial Disclosure Whistleblower Lawyer
An inadequate financial disclosure could put hundreds of investors at risk. Find out how to protect them and collect a sizeable monetary bounty in the process by working confidentially with a financial disclosure whistleblower lawyer.
Under federal securities laws, companies must disclose any information that is material to investor decisions regarding company stock. Financial disclosures are easily some of the most important pieces of information that investors and shareholders need to be aware of. These disclosures cover anything that indicates a company’s financial health and what it is doing with its assets and acquisitions.
Withholding negative or controversial financial information can mean dramatically negative consequences for investors, making knowledge of inadequate financial disclosures of particular interest to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). If you possess this type of information, you stand to gain substantial financial rewards from the SEC, and a financial disclosure whistleblower lawyer from Meissner Associates can help you submit your tip anonymously and effectively.
Recognizing Improper Financial Disclosures
Like many other types of corporate disclosures, determining whether withheld financial information is material to investors is not always straightforward. These are some of the most common scenarios that the SEC is likely to be interested in if the scope of the undisclosed information is large enough:
- Annual and Quarterly Filings – Companies are required to publish reports detailing their business dealings and their financial health. If this information involves deceptive accounting practices, a financial disclosure whistleblower lawyer can help you expose the truth.
- Mergers and Acquisitions – When a company buys another company, the corporate structure often undergoes significant changes that must all be made public.
- Shareholder Reports – Shareholders should receive an annual report regarding the company’s earnings that must also be filed with the SEC. This report must be accurate and complete; otherwise it represents an inadequate financial disclosure.
- Tender Offers – Financial disclosures are legally required when an offer is made to buy a large amount of a company’s stock at above the current rates.
Rewards for Becoming a Financial Disclosure Whistleblower
By blowing the whistle and alerting the SEC to withheld financial information, you stand to earn what could be a very large financial reward. If the information you submit to the SEC is original and leads to an investigation that eventually imposes monetary sanctions on the guilty company that total more than $1,000,000, you could receive between 10 and 30 percent of the money collected.
In numerous cases, the SEC has awarded millions of dollars to whistleblowers. However, your tip must be original and previously unknown to the SEC, so it’s important to act quickly and decisively if you have knowledge of inadequate financial disclosures. Not only could another whistleblower beat you to the submission, but waiting an unreasonable amount of time could also decrease your potential reward.
