Regulators may amend 'pre-marketing' rules Add to ...

Canadian Securities Administrators, the collection of provincial regulators, have put out a request for comment on proposed amendments to its pre-marketing and marketing prospectus rules.

Not exactly sexy stuff here, but nevertheless important. As it stands, investment dealers are banned from pre-marketing initial public offerings. CSA has put forward a proposal that would allow non-reporting issuers to determine interest in an IPO, through their investment dealer, before a prospectus is filed.

There is also a new proposal that would allow dealers to use term sheets and to conduct road shows during the waiting period after filing of a preliminary prospectus.

Moreover, CSA hopes to provide some clarity on when a bought deal can be upsized.

The full request for comment can be found here.
