FULL DISCLOSURE 2002
In the wake of Enron, WorldCom, Vivendi and countless other accounting and corporate governance scandals, corporate executives are withering under the intense glare and selling pressure of disappointed investors. Regardless of the overall market direction, companies must compete for access to capital. To effectively do so, they must give investors a full and compelling picture of future performance potential. We have been publishing Full Disclosure every two years since 1992. Learn how to communicate bad news, what investors want to know in a bear market and what to say about your company's future.
The study is a critical examination of the effectiveness of company communications with the investment community's information needs, presenting the disclosure practices of 50 Global 1000 companies. Using an index of over 300 proprietary disclosure categories (operational, governance and social), the study is a useful tool in the preparation of all key investor communications. Full Disclosure 2002 presents the current and best practices of disclosure in annual reports, proxy statements and corporate web sites enabling companies to practice effective, continuous reporting.
