Securities Act Rule 477; OMB Control No. 3235-0550; SEC File No. 270-493.
Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget this Start Printed Page 39292request for extension of the previously approved collection of information discussed below.
Rule 477 (17 CFR 230.477) under the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.) sets forth procedures for withdrawing a registration statement, an amendment to a registration statement, or any exhibits thereto. The rule provides that if a registrant intends to rely on the registered-to-private safe harbor contained in Securities Act Rule 155, the registrant must affirmatively state in the withdrawal application that it plans to undertake a subsequent private offering of its securities. Without this statement, the Commission would not be able to monitor a company's reliance on, and compliance with, Securities Act Rule 155(c). The likely respondents will be companies. All information submitted to the Commission under Securities Act Rule 477 is available to the public for review. Information provided under Securities Act Rule 477 is mandatory. The information is required on occasion. We estimate that approximately 300 issuers will file Securities Act Rule 477 submissions annually at an estimated one hour per response for a total annual burden of approximately 300 hours. We estimate that 100 percent of the reporting burden is prepared by the issuer.
An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number.
Written comments regarding the above information should be directed to the following persons: (i) Desk Officer for the Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, Room 10102, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503 or send an e-mail to: Shagufta_Ahmed@omb.eop.gov; and (ii) Charles Boucher, Director/CIO, Securities and Exchange Commission, C/O Shirley Martinson, 6432 General Green Way, Alexandria, VA 22312; or send an e-mail to PRA_Mailbox@sec.gov. Comments must be submitted to OMB within 30 days of this notice.Start Signature
