The regulatory environment is evolving, with new standards, new rules and new requirements. PR Register’s Vintage Filings division helps filers stay ahead of the curve.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) established mandatory e-proxy rules effective January 1, 2009 with compliance through a "notice and access" model using the Internet. All filers, registered investment companies, issuers and other soliciting parties are required to post proxy materials on a Web site and provide shareholders with a notice of the availability of materials on the Internet.
The Vintage Filings Notice and Access Proxy Service for the "full set delivery" option offers your corporation the tools it needs to comply with SEC regulations efficiently and cost-effectively. Vintage Filings can also help you furnish paper copies of the proxy materials along with the notice.
Choose Customized solutions for Notice and Access compliance
PR Register's Vintage Filings division gives your organizations the opportunity to comply with requirements set forth by regulatory bodies while maintaining corporate branding in a professional online presence. Our customized Notice and Access Proxy Service solutions include:
Post Annual Reports/10Ks and proxy statements in both HTML and PDF format on an SEC-compliant Web site
Customize your Web site URL so analysts and investors can quickly find you (e.g. www.vfnotice.com/CompanyName)
Display your company logo on the site to maintain brand identity
Link your notice and access site to your company's home page so target audiences can read more about your company

Financial documents need to be flexible enough to meet both print and online requirements. Prospectuses, annual and semiannual reports and other time-sensitive financial documents must exist in a high-quality typeset medium for printing purposes – but the content also needs to be exported to HTML without losing its presentation in order to comply with Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regulations.
PR Register's Vintage Filings Typesetting and Financial Printing services make your content available in both high-end typeset and SEC-ready HTML accurately and cost-effectively.
The Vintage Filings Typesetting system incorporates “Intelligent Document Coding” that allows us to run processes automatically on books of any size. Vintage Filings can streamline your IPO documents, proxy statements, Offering Circulars and other financial reporting tasks in several ways:

Vintage Filings' automation technology offers accurate proofs and revisions on your annual reports, Private Placement Memorandums and quarterly reports. Consider the time-saving benefits of Vintage Filings:

Vintage Filings offers print and delivery services ranging from full shareholder mailings to same-day delivery of courtesy copies to the SEC. Our digital capabilities streamline the process through:

The rules for filing financial disclosures are ever-changing. From the adoption of interactive data formats to the launch of new electronic data gathering methods, the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) continues to adapt to the Digital Age. These changes bring new challenges for public companies and the IROs and CFOs responsible for regulatory compliance.
Preparing public companies for new SEC rules
Vintage Filings, a division of PR Register, is committed to keeping your public company informed of SEC rule changes, helping you navigate the new world of compliance, and adopting new technologies to streamline compliance. The SEC's rule changes on interactive data include:
Public companies are required to submit financial disclosures formatted in tagged EXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) to IDEA (Interactive Data Electronic Applications), the SEC's next-generation EDGAR database, beginning mid-2009
Large accelerated filers using U.S. GAAP are subject to interactive data reporting in 2010 with all remaining operating companies following in 2011
Mutual funds are required to file the Risk/Return portions of prospectuses in XBRL in 2011
Vintage Filings can help your company prepare now, before the mandatory date, to ensure your first and subsequent live XBRL filings go smoothly. We partner with your internal financial executive to set up your tagging and review your taxomony to make sure it meets your reporting needs.
Streamline XBRL tagging for faster filings
XBRL streamlines communications with investors and regulatory filings. But in order to comply with the new global standard your documents need XML-tagging. Vintage Filings prepares your financial documents for reporting and sharing with the financial markets.
Leverage an XML-based tagging structure that creates an "intelligent" bundled description to make it easier for analysts and investors to use
Establish more efficient, effective dialogue with the markets
Alleviate the need for paper-based reports to avoid time-consuming and costly collation and information re-entry
Strict filing procedures ensure accurate regulatory compliance
XML-tagging eliminates manual data entry errors and saves time filing your final report. Vintage Filings implements a series of defined financial terms that helps your audiences access the most accurate information.
Increase accuracy with up-to-date and complete information providing access to investors, analysts, financial institutions and regulators
Handle data in different languages and accounting standards
Enable analysts to pull in reports through an Excel plug-in to expedite their analysis of as-reported data from multiple companies
Raise visibility among investors through cost-effective tagging
XML-tagging raises your visibility with investors because your financial disclosures are easier to search, extract and download from XBRL-enabled SEC filings. Vintage Filings offers cost-effective XBRL tagging that reduces research expenses for investment analysts.
Improve access to new sources of capital by offering more complete information to the investment community
Boost awareness of your company in the financial marketplace with more user-friendly financial documents
Reduce the cost of capital by remaining on the coverage list of investment analysts that are excluding hard-to-follow companies
Contact PR Register to learn more about our XBRL services.
Although the Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval (EDGAR) system offers many benefits to investors, corporations and the economy, it also puts a burden on public companies to convert and submit financial disclosure documents in accepted formats on strict deadlines. PR Register's Vintage Filings division offers accurate conversions to HTML and ASCII and timely filings to streamline compliance.
