But companies must be aware of the risk in revealing too much information, cautions Al Beimfohr, president of Knightsbridge Asset Management in Newport Beach. "In general the United States is a much more litigious place to do business than Japan or Europe [where nonfinancial reports are widely issued]. He believes that CFOs and CEOs need to be cautious about divulging key elements of what would be meritorious defenses in the case of litigation.

Beimfohr also believes that CFOs should be careful about releasing information that could be used by competitors to gain an advantage.

"Alan Beimfohr was my friend. He had a tremendous impact on the Philharmonic Society. He was a consummate board member-he had a lifetime of engagement with great music, and he demonstrated this over and over with his passionate participation which attracted others to follow his lead. My professional raison d'ĂȘtre is to give my passion for music to others. Al always gave his passion to me. I sat next him at the last performance he attended. The principal horn of the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra had just finished a beautiful rendition of the solo in the Andante Cantabile movement of the Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony. Al, knowing I was a former horn player, smiled at me and gave me an enthusiastic thumbs up. I will never forget that. Linda smiled at me, too, because she knew Al was doing something he really loved, as it turned out, for the last time," said Dean Corey, President and Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Society of Orange County.

"Al's support and stewardship of the Philharmonic Society was outstanding and exemplary.

Al was an enthusiastic supporter of the arts in Orange County. Al supported the Philharmonic Society of Orange County in every way. He could always be counted on to attend and support major galas, post-concert receptions and dinners. He was also a member of the Society's esteemed Esterhazy Patron Circle. Al served on the Society's Board of Directors for nearly 10 years and served as Chairman of the Board for two seasons, during our nation's economic crisis. Al's leadership and direction helped the Philharmonic Society survive the challenging times, leading it to a healthier financial place. Much of the health of the organization today is attributed to Al's dedicated leadership.
Al loved classical music. He was greatly influenced in his childhood by his mother, Dorothy. In addition to her ballet experience, she played the piano. She especially enjoyed playing Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff and Chopin. She loved Debussy's "Claire de Lune" and played it often. The elegant sound of her piano playing pervaded Al's young life.
In fourth grade, the school district in which Al's family lived gave students musical aptitude tests. The policy was that students with high aptitude scores would be given free instruments and lessons. Al ranked 3rd highest in the district that year. Al chose the clarinet and began lessons. He continued playing the clarinet through his high school years, becoming captain of the marching band at Stranahan High School in Ft. Lauderdale, and playing in the All-County High School Concert Band.
Al is survived by his wife, Linda M. Beimfohr, older brother Carl Edward Beimfohr, three children, Alison B. Stanley, Nicholas E. Beimfohr and Kurt E. Beimfohr and five grandchildren.
