The recently released Insider Search page on Securities Mosaic is our most ambitious release in years

December 11, 2018

Last weekend, we released a completely revamped version of our search page for Insider Filings — EDGAR Forms 3, 4, and 5.  These filings, ubiquitous yet revelatory, are where company bigwigs and fat cats (a.k.a. Executives, Directors, and significant Beneficial Owners) publicly disclose their trading on the securities of that company.  The new, state-of-the-art tool — a collaboration between Lexis Securities Mosaic and Intelligize — offers a dozen new search filters along with major functionality enhancements.  It’s our most ambitious release in several years.

You can get more specific details in our last blog post, but here is a summary of the high-level capabilities offered by the new search page.  Use it to:

  • Track significant insider buying and selling and analyze trends, based on the criteria you specify
  • Identify, value, and benchmark equity compensation in the form of grants and options
  • Find similar transactions to locate precedent language or model disclosure to guide your own Form 4 disclosure
  • Identify the major stakeholders in a company or industry, either currently or historically

And who exactly might benefit from such capabilities?  The answer is as diverse as the disclosure itself, and includes:

  • Law firms advising corporations on matters related to executive compensation (stock purchase and other 10b5-1 plans, employment agreements, etc.)
  • Lawyers representing either side in shareholder litigation claims regarding: executive compensation issues – say-on-pay, etc.
  • Lawyers representing corporations (whether as outside or in-house counsel) heading into proxy season (to be in position to advise on exec compensation, pay ratio disclosure, etc.)
  • Public companies advising Section 16 execs who are considering open market transactions on how to disclose
  • In-house counsel and corporate secretaries preparing for proxy season (to be in position to advise on exec compensation, pay ratio disclosure, etc.)
  • Consultants who advise companies in the area of Executive Compensation and Employee Benefits
  • Lawyers representing either side in any litigation aimed at a company or individual (due diligence research, etc.)
  • Lawyers representing either side in shareholder litigation claims re: short swing profit violations or insider trading violations
  • Wealth managers, financial analysts, and investment advisers (for business development)
  • And of course, investors, day traders, — pretty much anyone who wants to follow the money.
