why companies go on dark side. Form 15 Going Dark to Avoid an SEC Suspension
Educational Post: SEC Suspends Delinquent Filers
SEC Form 15-12G
is a form that allows for
certification of termination of registration
of a class of security under Section 12(g)
or notice of suspension of duty to file reports
pursuant to Sections 13 and 15(d)
of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. https://www.investopedia.com/terms/s/sec-form-15-12g.asp
Since the SEC began its recent run
of suspension notices against delinquent filers
there has been an uptick
in the number of Form 15 filings
done by delinquent filers.
A Form 15
is a filing done by an SEC Registrant
to voluntarily deregister its stock with the SEC.
the Issuer moves to the Pink Sheets
and is no longer required to do periodic reports
( 10-Q's and 10-K's ) with the SEC.
It is obvious that some delinquent filers
took notice of the suspension risk
and decided it was better
to lower the respectability
and value of the public vehicle by going dark
rather than risk a future SEC suspension.
* Delinquent Filers
run the risk of being suspended
at any time without warning.
* No longer a suspension risk as a delinquent filer
* Can still be suspended by the SEC
if the SEC deems the security
to be a risk to the public
because of some kind of fraudulent activity. https://otcmarketresearch.com/sec-gives-delinquent-filers-a-wake-up-call/
