Investors and founders have had to become more creative and seek other ways to exit ($$). Only a handful of companies have made it through the SOX morass. So, it does seem logical that they are better. But, to suggest SOX might have actually been positive? Like the TSA is positive because more people are learning to fly? (I don't know if this is true).

What parts of SOX do you think are negative?

Multinational I work for with over 100 billion yoyos of revenue and 150,000 employees stepped off the NYSE because SOX was too expensive to be bothered with.

Did they take the company entirely private? Because if they didn't, SOX still applies to them; it isn't an NYSE thing.

Anyways: that's not responsive to my question. What parts of the law are negative? What parts would you do away with?
