When a director or officer joins or leaves a public company, the SEC requires that certain information be disclosed in a current report (8-K) under Item 5.02 within four business days. The information required includes basics such as the officer’s name, effective date and a brief description of any material plan, contract or arrangement. However, the amount of information disclosed, particularly for executive departures, varies greatly.

In this article, Audit Analytics takes a closer look at overall departure trends of CEOs and CFOs filed in an 8-K Item 5.02 between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2018, excluding departures disclosed for interim positions.
