Going Concern Note

  • December 2, 2022
« Back to Glossary

A “going concern note/warning/statement” is a disclosure, generally made by a publicly traded company in their required SEC reporting, advising the public that the company’s prospects to continue operating for the foreseeable future (i.e., to remain as a “going concern”) are impaired. Such a statement, setting forth the reasons for the apprehension, is mandated by the SEC. Investors and potential investors may be adequately forewarned about the possibility of a bankruptcy or other major restructuring jolt coming down the road if conditions do not improve.
