10 Pa. Code § 203.041. Limited offerings.

§ 203.041. Limited offerings.

 (a)  The notice required under section 203(d) of the act (70 P.S. §  1-203(d)) shall be filed with the Department within the time period specified on Form E in accordance with the General Instructions.

 (b)  The Department will not consider the requirement of section 203(d)(i) of the act to be met unless the issuer meets all of the following:

   (1)  Enters into a written agreement by which the purchaser agrees not to sell the securities purchased under the exemption within 12 months after the date of purchase, except in accordance with §  204.011 (relating to waivers of the 12-month holding period), and a copy of the agreement to be signed has been filed with the Department.

   (2)  Places a legend on the security restricting its transferability for 12 months after the date of purchase except in accordance with §  204.011.

   (3)  Instructs its transfer agent, if any, that no transfer of the securities is permitted except in accordance with section 203(d) of the act, §  204.011 and this section.

 (c)  Except if the promoters, as defined in section 102(o) of the act (70 P.S. §  1-102(o)), are registered under section 301 of the act (70 P.S. §  1-301), the condition contained in section 203(d)(iii) of the act is met only if a promoter does not receive an underwriting, selling or finder’s fee or commission or other remuneration directly or indirectly for the sale of securities under the exemption.

   (1)  A promoter is considered to have received indirect remuneration if money or property is paid to an affiliate of a promoter as compensation for the sale of securities.

   (2)  The fact that the value of a promoter’s investment in the issuer is increased as a result of the offering or that the promoter will receive remuneration from the issuer for services given to the issuer in the ordinary course of its business or for the sale of property to it does not, of itself, preclude the availability of the exemption.

 (d)  During the period of the offering, the issuer shall take steps necessary to ensure that the material information contained in its notice remains current and accurate in all material respects. If a material statement made in the notice, or an attachment thereto, becomes materially incorrect or inaccurate, the issuer shall file an amendment with the Department in accordance with §  609.011 (relating to amendments to filings with Department) within 5 business days of the occurrence of the event which required the filing of the amendment.
