Survey Says Reg FD Will Improve Communications

More than 40% of the public companies headquartered in Ohio say they will change the way they communicate with investors because of the Securities and Exchange Commission's new
Regulation Fair Disclosure, set to go into effect next month (PRN, Aug. 28 and Sept. 11). The vast majority of companies making changes in their IR communications (75%)
said "they'd be more open in their communications," according to Jim King, VP of IR at Edward Howard & Co., the firm that conducted the survey. (The new rule basically
requires that companies release "material information" that might affect their stock performance to the general public at the same time they provide it to institutional investors
and analysts.)
