This Roadmap is intended to help domestic registrants navigate their SEC reporting obligations related to the acquisition or probable acquisition of a business. It combines the SEC’s guidance on reporting for business acquisitions — including acquisitions of real estate operations and pro forma financial information — with Deloitte’s interpretations and examples in a comprehensive, reader-friendly format.
The Roadmap reflects the SEC’s final rule (issued in May 2020) on the financial statement requirements for acquisitions of businesses, including real estate operations and related pro form financial information. The April 2022 edition also incorporates recent guidance from the SEC staff on acquisitions by a registrant’s non-wholly-owned consolidated subsidiary.
