Start Preamble June 10, 2004.

Foreign private issuers with total assets in excess of $10,000,000 and a class of equity securities held of record by 500 or more persons, of which 300 or more reside in the United States, are subject to registration under section Start Printed Page 3394912(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 [1] (the “Act”).[2]

Rule 12g3-2(b)[3] provides an exemption from registration under section 12(g) of the Act with respect to a foreign private issuer that submits to the Commission, on a current basis, the material required by the Rule. The informational requirements are designed to give investors access to certain information so they have the opportunity to inform themselves about the issuer. The Rule requires the issuer to provide the Commission with information that it: (1) Has made or is required to make public pursuant to the law of the country of its domicile or in which it is incorporated or organized; (2) has filed or is required to file with a stock exchange on which its securities are traded and that was made public by such exchange; and/or (3) has distributed or is required to distribute to its security holders.

When the Commission adopted Rule 12g3-2(b) and other rules [4] relating to foreign securities, it indicated that from time to time it would publish lists of foreign issuers that have claimed exemptions from the registration provisions of section 12(g) of the Act.[5] The purpose of this release is to call to the attention of brokers, dealers, and investors that some form of relatively current information concerning the issuers included in this list is available in our public files.[6] We also wish to bring to the attention of brokers, dealers, and investors the fact that current information concerning foreign issuers may not necessarily be available in the United States.[7] We continue to expect that brokers and dealers will consider this fact in connection with their obligations under the federal securities laws to have a reasonable basis for recommending those securities to their customers.[8]

You may direct any questions regarding Rule 12g3-2 or the list of issuers in this release to Michael Pressman, Office of International Corporate Finance, Division of Corporation Finance, Securities and Exchange Commission, Washington, DC 20549-0302 ((202) 942-2990). This release is available on the Commission's Web site:​rules/​other/​shtml.

End Preamble


2.  Foreign issuers may also be subject to the registration requirements of the Act by reason of having securities registered and listed on a national securities exchange in the United States, and may be subject to the reporting requirements of the Act by reason of having registered securities under the Securities Act of 1933, 15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.

Back to Citation

4.  Exchange Act Release No. 8066 (April 28, 1967).

Back to Citation

5.  Exchange Act Release No. 48063; International Series Release No. 1269 (June 19, 2003) was the last such list.

Back to Citation

6.  Inclusion of an issuer on the list in this release is not an affirmation by the Commission that the issuer has complied or is complying with all the conditions of Rule 12g3-2(b). The list does identify the issuers that have both claimed the exemption and have submitted relatively current information to the Commission as of June 2, 2004.

Back to Citation

7.  Paragraph (a)(4) of Rule 15c2-11 (17 CFR 240.15c2-11) requires a broker-dealer initiating a quotation for securities of a foreign private issuer to review, maintain in its files, and make reasonably available upon request the information furnished to the Commission pursuant to Rule 12g3-2(b) since the beginning of the issuer's last fiscal year.

Back to Citation

8.  See, e.g., Hanley v. SEC, 415 F.2d 589 (2d Cir. 1969) (broker-dealer cannot recommend a security unless an adequate and reasonable basis exists for such recommendation).
