Form S-4. SEC File No. 270-287, OMB Control No. 3235-0324.

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 a request for extension of the previously approved collection of information discussed below.

Form S-4 (17 CFR 239.25) is the form used for registration under the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.) of securities issued in business combination transactions. The information collected is intended to ensure the adequacy of information available to investors in connection with business combination transactions. Form S-4 is a public document and all information provided is mandatory. Form S-4 takes approximately 4,099.68 hours per response to prepare and is filed by 551 registrants annually. We estimate that 25% of the 4,099.68 hours per response (1,024.92 hours) is prepared by the registrant for an annual reporting burden of 564,731 hours (1,024.92 hours per response × 551 responses).

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.
