On March 12, 2014, the Division of Corporation Finance (the “Division”) of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) issued its “Revised Statement on Well-Known Seasoned Issuer Waivers.” This guidance updates and refines the Division’s 2011 policy for granting waivers of “ineligible issuer” status in order to allow an issuer to qualify as a “well-known seasoned issuer” (a “WKSI”).
