The SEC has approved additional changes to the FINRA Corporate Financing Rule. The approved changes:
- expand the circumstances under which members and issuers may negotiate termination fees and rights of first refusal, with specified conditions;
- exempt from the filing requirements exchange-traded funds formed as grantor or statutory trusts; and
- codify the electronic filing requirement.
These changes are in addition to the approved changes we discussed in this blog.
