Regulation A (OMB Control No. 3235-0286; SEC File No. 270-110) provides an exemption from registration under the Securities Act for certain limited securities offerings by issuers who do not otherwise file reports with the Commission. Form 1-A is an offering statement filed under Regulation A. Form 2-A is used to report sales and use of proceeds in Regulation A offerings. All information is provided to the public for review. The information required is filed on occasion and is mandatory. Approximately 165 issuers annually file Forms 1-A and 2-A. It is estimated that Form 1-A takes 608 hours to prepare, Form 2-A takes 12 hours to prepare and Regulation A takes one administrative hour to review for a total of 621 hours per response. The total burden hours are 102,465. It is estimated that 75% of the 102,465 total burden hours (76,849 burden hours) would be prepared by the company.
An agency may conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number.
