The Unexpected Benefits of SOX: A Conversation with Michael Oxley

by Toby Lucich on December 11, 2007

In response to a series of corporate scandals, Congressman Michael Oxley and Senator Paul Sarbanes sponsored the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act of 2002. Conceived as an investor protection law, this wide-ranging legislation impacted U.S. public companies in many ways. Supporters of these reforms applaud SOX as necessary and useful, while critics have consistently voiced concerns over cost and resource requirements of compliance. It’s time to take another look.

Highlights:

  • Has the impact of SOX been predictable? Or have there been surprises? (5:48)
  • Do Section 404 provisions focus too narrowly on short-term results? (16:23)
  • How would you assess the impact of SOX on the marketplace? (25:09)
  • Is there a measurable performance strategy available to companies that will enable them to refocus their long-term thinking to achieve predictable benefits from SOX? (38:30)
