Timing is everything; second edition

It’s not the first time that the press release got out ahead of the facts. Target is a repeat offender.

“Target Puts A Release On Website By Mistake,” The Wall Street Journal, June 10, 2015 B3.  Premature release of report on earnings.  Similar to a release in the spring, which Target let go too soon.

At least it’s not the SEC.

How well do you manage and control the release of important information?  If you make a mistake one time, do you improve your processes?  Or do you just not care?
