About SEED

The Securities Enforcement Empirical Database (SEED) tracks and records information for SEC enforcement actions filed against public companies, their subsidiaries. SEED also includes information for individuals who are named defendants in these actions. Created by the NYU Pollack Center for Law & Business in collaboration with Cornerstone Research, SEED facilitates the analysis and reporting of SEC enforcement actions through regular updates of new filings and settlement information for ongoing enforcement actions.

SEED tracks actions filed beginning October 1, 2009—the beginning of the SEC fiscal year 2010. The database does not analyze enforcement actions filed with only delinquent filing allegations.
