  • Canadian securities regulators have adopted new rules which significantly broaden the scope of permissible marketing activities for prospectus offerings in Canada. The rules broaden the range of marketing activities even more than the initial proposals (outlined in our January 26, 2012 update, “Significant Changes Proposed to the Rules Governing Prospectus Offerings in Canada”). The new rules also reflect, and provide guidance on, well-developed practices in securities offerings, and clarify regulatory perspectives on questions and issues concerning offering processes that have been clouded with uncertainty.
