6-k

The HTML to link to this page
 

A 6-k is a Form 6-k or "Report of Foreign Private Issuer Pursuant to Rules 13a-16 and 15d-16" under the 1934 Act of the SEC. A Form 6-k is commonly used by non-US issuers who prepare annual and semiannual financial reports to their home country regulators and submit a Form 6-k to the SEC as a cover statement to those submissions. Form 6-k relieves the burden of dual reporting for certain non-US issuers who must file under these rules. Available for download from the SEC's web site, Form 6-k requires both a cover page and a signature page. Form 6-k also requires the company to indicate whether it will file 20-F or 40-F annual report forms. All press releases and documents relating to the 6-k must be translated into English. Issuers may include additional foreign language copies of any Form 6-k materials submitted in English.
