Form 11-K provides employees of an issuer with financial information so that they can assess the performance of the investment vehicle or stock plan. Form 11-K is filed on occasion. The information collected must be filed with the Commission and is publicly available. Form 11-K takes approximately 30 burden hours per response and is filed by 2,000 respondents for total of 60,000 burden hours.
An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number.
