General Rules and Regulations
Securities Act of 1933
Rule 409 -- Information Unknown or Not Reasonably Available
Information required need be given only insofar as it is known or reasonably available
to the registrant. If any required information is unknown and not reasonably available
to the registrant, either because the obtaining thereof could involve unreasonable
effort or expense, or because it rests peculiarly within the knowledge of another
person not affiliated with the registrant, the information may be omitted, subject
to the following conditions:
The registrant shall give such information on the subject
as it possesses or can acquire without unreasonable effort or expense, together with
the sources thereof.
The registrant shall include a statement either showing
that unreasonable effort or expense would be involved or indicating the absence of
any affiliation with the person within whose knowledge the information rests and
stating the result of a request made to such person for the information.
