In September 2012, I founded Disclosure Matters LLC. My goal: To make corporate disclosures more accessible to a wider range of people.
My theory is that some investors know how to mine Securities and Exchange Commission filings and other documents for useful information. footnoted caters those professional investors who want a hand keeping tabs on the filings.
But a lot of other individuals and organizations need to understand what companies are up to. It takes experience and skill to get the most out of the mountains of verbiage that companies generate each year -- experience and skill most people and groups lack.
Disclosure Matters is intended to fill that gap -- to serve as a kind of corporate research bureau for the rest of us. Check out the website, and let me know what you think.
