Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) new anti-manipulation rule concerning securities offerings. GAO found that: (1) the rule would govern the activities of underwriters, issuers, selling securityholders, and others in connection with securities offerings; (2) the rule is intended to preclude manipulative conduct by persons with an interest in the outcome of an offering; (3) the rule would also ease the regulatory burdens on offering participants; and (4) SEC complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
