The information related to the company issuing the securities is not of the same degree of significance, some of which are in connection with the daily business that does not influence the price of the securities, and some of them are sensitive and essential information. This means that the information has an impact on the stock market by influencing the price of securities traded in the stock market, up or down, and in this way the information contributes to determining the options of investors to buy or sell or determining the prices at which the process takes place. To achieve market efficiency, the investor in the market should not take advantage of that information alone in order to achieve gains as a result of obtaining this information. Therefore, the issuing companies must disclose sensitive information to the public at the same time.
