This publication analyzes some of the key aspects of the Dodd-Frank Act that are affecting nonfinancial services companies. It is aimed at helping these companies evaluate and address possible consequences of the act’s provisions.
Due to the lack of awareness about the provisions’ impact on nonfinancial services companies, many may find it difficult to understand how the legislation will affect their businesses. The immediate issues of concern for these companies are whistleblower provisions, the required disclosures relating to executive compensation, incentive compensation, and mine-safety disclosures.
Companies unaware of these and other major provisions of the act risk being noncompliant.
