Section 8-6-6

Registration of securities - Registration of certain securities by coordination.

(a) Any security for which a registration statement has been filed under the Securities Act of 1933 in connection with the same offering may be registered by coordination.

(b) A registration statement under this section shall contain the following information and be accompanied by the following documents, in addition to payment of the registration fee prescribed in Section 8-6-8:

(1) Two copies of the prospectus filed under the Securities Act of 1933, together with all amendments thereto;

(2) If the Securities Commission requests, any other information or copies of any other documents filed under the Securities Act of 1933;

(3) The amount of securities to be offered in this state;

(4) The states in which a registration statement or similar document in connection with the offering has been or is expected to be filed;

(5) Any adverse order or judgment previously entered in connection with the offering by any court or the Securities and Exchange Commission;

(6) An undertaking to forward promptly all amendments to the federal registration statement, other than an amendment which merely delays the effective date.

(c) A registration statement under this section automatically becomes effective at the moment the federal registration statement becomes effective if all the following conditions are satisfied:

(1) No order to the contrary is in effect;

(2) The registration statement has been on file with the Securities Commission for at least five full business days; and

(3) A statement; of the maximum and minimum proposed offering prices and the maximum underwriting discounts and commissions has been on file for one full business day, or such shorter period as the commission permits by rule or otherwise, and the offering is made within those limitations. The registrant shall promptly notify the commission by telephone or telegram of the date and time when the federal registration statement became effective and the content of the price amendment, if any, and shall promptly file a posteffective amendment containing the information and documents in the price amendment. "Price amendment" means the final federal amendment which includes a statement of the offering price, underwriting and selling discounts or commissions, amount of proceeds, conversion rates, call prices, and other matters dependent upon the offering price.

(d) Upon failure to receive the required notification and posteffective amendment with respect to the price amendment, the commission may enter an order denying effectiveness to the registration statement or suspending its effectiveness until compliance with subsection (c) of this section, if the commission promptly notifies the registrant by telephone or telegram, and promptly confirms by letter or telegram when it notifies by telephone, of the issuance of the order. If the registrant proves compliance with the requirements of subsection (c) of this section as to notice and posteffective amendment, the order is void as of the time of its entry. The commission may by rule or otherwise waive either or both of the conditions specified in subdivisions (c) (2) and (c) (3) of this section. If the federal registration statement becomes effective before all these conditions are satisfied and they are not waived, the registration statement automatically becomes effective as soon as all the conditions are satisfied. If the registrant advises the commission of the date when the federal registration statement is expected to become effective, the commission shall promptly advise the registrant by telephone or telegram at the registrant's expense whether all the conditions are satisfied and whether it then contemplates the institution of a proceeding under Section 8-6-9, but this advice by the commission does not preclude the institution of such a proceeding at any time.
