On August 23, the Securities and Exchange Commission announced that, effective October 1, the fees that public companies and other issuers pay to register their securities with the SEC will increase from $121.20 per million dollars to $129.80 per million dollars, an increase of approximately 7.1 percent. This increase in the SEC registration statement filing fee follows a 2.6 percent reduction in fees from fiscal year 2018 to fiscal year 2019. The fee rate adjustment applies to the filing fee required under Section 6(b) of the Securities Act of 1933 applicable to the registration of securities, the filing fee required under Section 13(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act) applicable to the repurchase of securities, and the filing fee rates required under Section 14(g) of the Exchange Act applicable to proxy solicitations and statements in corporate control transactions.
