Change in Vibato's Management

Posted by Teresa Bockwoldton Mon, Mar 22, 2010 @ 04:00 PM

After much thought and reflection, I have decided to step down as CEO of Vibato, LLC and instead, I have been appointed to CIO.  I feel this change will allow me to focus on doing what I love to do best; helping our clients meet their day-to-day compliance needs and enhancing our product line rather than focusing on Vibato's business needs.  Bill Bockwoldt has taken the helm and in all truthfulness, he has been performing CEO activities for a long time.  We all feel this change will allow Vibato to get to the next level in our business efforts and allow us to provide even greater customer support than we already do.  Please join me in congratulating Bill on this well earned promotion!

Draft Bill Before the Senate DOES NOT INCLUDE 404(b) Delay?

Posted by Teresa Bockwoldton Wed, Mar 17, 2010 @ 04:00 PM

The omnibus financial reform bill (H.R. 4173) or the "Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2009" was passed by the House of Representatives via a vote of 223-202 on December 11, 2009.  This bill would seek to permanently grant a 404(b) reprieve for non-accelerated filers (those with a market capitalization below $75 million).  The bill must now be passed by the Senate to be put into law and their vote has yet to be scheduled.  As it stands now, non-accelerated filers must comply with 404(b) by June 15, 2010; 404(a) has been in effect since 2007 and is not in debate.

Supreme Court to find Sarbanes-Oxley Unconstitutional? Mike Oxley says no.

Posted by Teresa Bockwoldton Tue, Mar 02, 2010 @ 03:00 PM

Michael Oxley, co-author of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, was questioned on whether or not he believed the Supreme Court would find Sarbox unconstitutional. The Supreme Court is currently reviewing the legislation for constitutionality.  An auditor from Nevada claims the Public Companies Accounting Oversight Board or PCAOB, put him out of business.  He then filed a lawsuit claiming the PCAOB and the legislation is unconstitutional and the case has escalated to the Supreme Court.
