The Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the proposed listing standards of the NYSE and Nasdaq will affect the composition of the boards of directors and audit committees of certain portfolio companies and will impact the individual members of the board. The provisions discussed in this Alert are in addition to other provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act previously discussed in other Alerts, including personal certification of periodic reports by chief executive and chief financial officers, new accounting reforms and heightened corporate disclosure requirements.
