SUBMISSIONS OF DRAFT REGISTRATION STATEMENTS TO THE SEC VIA EDGAR REQUIRED BEGINNING OCTOBER 15TH

We previously blogged about the Securities and Exchange Commission’s announcement that starting October 1, 2012, certain emerging growth companies and foreign private issuers would be able to voluntarily submit to the SEC draft registration statements for non-public and confidential review via a modified EDGAR system instead of via the current secure e-mail submission process.  Filing such draft registration statements via EDGAR will become mandatory when the new EDGAR Filer Manual becomes effective next Monday, October 15, 2012. Therefore, beginning October 15, 2012, draft registration statements and amendments as well as related correspondence must be submitted or filed via the EDGAR system.
