Form 1-SA, SEC File No. 270-661, OMB Control No. 3235-0721.
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”) is soliciting comments on the collection of information summarized below. The Commission plans to submit this existing collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget for extension and approval.
Form 1-SA (17 CFR 239.92) is used to file semiannual reports by Tier 2 issuers under Regulation A, an exemption from registration under the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.). Tier 2 issuers under Regulation A conducting offerings of up to $50 million within a 12-month period are required to file Form 1-SA. Form 1-SA provides semiannual, interim financial statements and information about the issuer's liquidity, capital resources and operations after the issuer's second fiscal quarter. The purpose of the Form 1-SA is to better inform the public about companies that have conducted Tier 2 offerings under Regulation A. We estimate that approximately 36 issuers file Form 1-SA annually. We estimate that Form 1-SA takes approximately 187.43 hours to prepare. We estimate that 85% of the 187.43 hours per response (159.32 hours) is prepared by the company for a total annual burden of 5,736 hours (159.32 hours per response × 36 responses).
Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden imposed by the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Consideration will be given to comments and suggestions submitted in writing within 60 days of this publication.
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.
Please direct your written comments to Pamela Dyson, Director/Chief Information Officer, Securities and Exchange Commission, c/o Remi Pavlik-Simon, 100 F Street NE, Washington, DC 20549; or send an email to: PRA_Mailbox@sec.gov.
