Acceleration of registration statements if there is a change in the SEC's operating status

Acceleration of registration statements if there is a change in the SEC's operating status


We understand that the ongoing uncertainty about possible changes in the SEC's operating status in the event of a prolonged federal government shutdown is raising concerns for registrants that are planning to request acceleration of their registration statements in the near future. If a change in our operating status becomes imminent, we will provide as much advance notice as we can and will consider granting requests for acceleration of the effective date of those pending registration statements.
