§ 25.13. Forms—incorporation by reference, summaries and omissions.

 (a)  Information required in Form A, B or D—F located in Appendix A may be incorporated by reference as provided in this subsection if the incorporation would not make the information provided in the form incomplete, unclear or confusing. Information required by an item in Form A, B or D—F may be incorporated by reference in answer or partial answer to another item. Information contained in a financial statement, annual report, proxy statement, statement filed with a governmental authority or another document may be incorporated by reference in answer or partial answer to an item in Form A, B or D—F if the document or paper is filed as an exhibit to the form. Excerpts of documents may be filed as exhibits if the documents are extensive. Documents currently on file with the Commissioner which were filed within the immediately preceding 3 years need not be attached as exhibits if there has been no change in the information already on file. References to information contained in exhibits or in documents already on file shall clearly identify the material and shall specifically indicate that the material is to be incorporated by reference in answer to the item.

 (b)  If an item requires a summary or outline of the provisions of a document, only a brief statement shall be made as to the pertinent provisions of the document. In addition to the brief statement, the summary or outline may incorporate by reference particular parts of an exhibit or document currently on file with the Commissioner which was filed within the immediately preceding 3 years and may be qualified in its entirety by that reference. When two or more documents required to be filed as exhibits are substantially identical in all material respects, except as to the parties thereto, the dates of execution or other details, a copy of only one of the documents needs be filed with a schedule identifying the omitted documents and setting forth the material details in which the omitted documents differ from the document which is filed.
