Companies must be very careful with what they say about their prospects etc. There are rules on how information can be released.

The following case is an Australian one and appeals have been lodged. However it demonstrates that the release of company information in a media release is important.

The release of company information is also an important one in the US so a similar situation may well apply.

Hello, writers (on the several lists to which Iâm cross-posting
thisquestion),

Iâll be talking to someone about part-time content writing, and one of
their needs is âturn outlines into prose for publishing to the press.â
Iâve never written press releases before, and wonder if there are any
specific legal things I should beware of before jumping in to the
assignment (assuming the opportunity pans out, that
is)?

And if you have any books/white papers/websites to recommend for info
about writing press releases, that would be very welcome!

TIA,
-Monique
