Tired of Manually Searching Peers’ Exhibit Index? Hyperlinking is on the Horizon

We all know that whenever previously filed exhibits are referenced in a filing, those exhibits are listed in that filing’s exhibit index. If more information is needed surrounding that exhibit, instead of simply clicking a link to point users directly to that exhibit, users must spend time manually navigating back and forth to reference exhibit information with other filings.

Say goodbye – these days are soon behind us! On March 1st, 2017, The SEC recently announced its Final Rule on Exhibit Hyperlinking as part of its initiative to improve ease of access to exhibit information – all but eliminating the need to search.
