58 Pa. Code § 433a.5. Institutional investors.

§ 433a.5. Institutional investors.

 (a)  An institutional investor may file an Institutional Investor Notice of Ownership Form and Passive Investor Affirmation with the Bureau of Licensing instead of applying for principal licensure required under this chapter, if:

   (1)  The institutional investor owns or beneficially owns more than 5% but less than 20% of the outstanding voting securities of a publicly traded corporation that is a principal affiliate of a manufacturer, manufacturer designee, supplier licensee or applicant and has filed and remains eligible to file a statement of beneficial ownership on Schedule 13G with the SEC as a result of the institutional investor’s ownership interest in the publicly traded corporation.

   (2)  The institutional investor owns or beneficially owns more than 5% but less than 10% of the outstanding voting securities of a publicly traded corporation that is a principal affiliate of a slot machine or management company licensee and has filed and remains eligible to file a statement of beneficial ownership on Schedule 13G with the SEC as a result of the institutional investor’s ownership interest in the publicly traded corporation. In addition to filing an Institutional Investor Notice of Ownership Form and Passive Affirmation, if an institutional investor seeks to own 10% or more but less than 20% of the outstanding voting securities of a publicly traded corporation that is a principal affiliate of a slot machine or management company licensee:

     (i)   The institutional investor seeking to acquire the interest shall promptly provide information requested by the Bureau relating to the institutional investor, its operations and sources of funds. The information provided to the Bureau will be deemed confidential when submitted.

     (ii)   Within 5 days of receipt of all requested information, the Bureau will issue a written response relating to the proposed acquisition. If the Bureau does not cite an objection, the transaction may thereafter be consummated. If the Bureau objects to the acquisition, the institutional investor shall file a petition with the Board in accordance with §  493a.4 (relating to petitions generally) for approval prior to acquiring the interest.

 (b)  If an institutional investor’s purpose for holding an interest in a publicly traded corporation that is a principal affiliate of a slot machine, management company, manufacturer, manufacturer designee or supplier licensee changes from that of a passive investor, whereby the institutional investor files a Schedule 13D with the SEC indicating that its ownership interest is no longer passive, the institutional investor shall notify the Bureau of Licensing, in writing, within 2 days of filing the Schedule 13D with the SEC. The institutional investor shall then apply for licensure as a principal, in accordance with this chapter, within 30 days of filing the Schedule 13D with the SEC.

 (c)  Notwithstanding the requirements in subsections (a) and (b), if the institutional investor has an ownership interest in a publicly traded corporation, which is a principal affiliate of a licensee, that is listed on a foreign exchange in which a Schedule 13G is not filed, the institutional investor shall file a copy of the corresponding passive investor form filed with the securities regulator that has jurisdiction over the foreign publicly traded corporation.

 (d)  The institutional investor shall file the Institutional Investor Notice of Ownership Form with the Bureau of Licensing within 30 days of the institutional investor filing its Schedule 13G with the SEC or the corresponding passive investor form with the securities regulator that has jurisdiction over the foreign publicly traded corporation.
