SEC’s Proposed Amendments to Rule 15c2-12

In February 2017, the SEC proposed two new amendments to Rule 15c2-12. The amendments propose to add two new events to the existing material events that would be required to be disclosed under an issuer or obligated persons continuing disclosure agreement. Specifically, the SEC proposes to add the incurrence of a material “financial obligation” or agreement to a material debt covenant or debt provision that would modify the priority rights of the issuers or obligated persons existing debt holders as a material event under 15c2-12. The BDA met with the SEC’s Office of Municipal Securities in June 2017 and discussed the policy concerns BDA raised in its comment letter.
