General Rules and Regulations
Securities Act of 1933
Rule 477 -- Withdrawal of Registration Statement or Amendment
Except as provided in paragraph (b) of this section,
any registration statement or any amendment or exhibit thereto may be withdrawn
upon application if the Commission, finding such withdrawal consistent with
the public interest and the protection of investors, consents thereto.
Any application for withdrawal of a registration
statement filed on Form F-2 relating to
a dividend or interest reinvestment plan, or on Form
S-4 complying with General Instruction G of that Form, and/or any pre-effective
amendment thereto, will be deemed granted upon filing if such filing is made prior
to the effective date. Any other application for withdrawal of an entire registration
statement made before the effective date of the registration statement will be
deemed granted at the time the application is filed with the Commission unless,
within 15 calendar days after the registrant files the application, the Commission
notifies the registrant that the application for withdrawal will not be granted.
The registrant must sign any application for withdrawal
and must state fully in it the grounds on which the registrant makes the application.
The fee paid upon the filing of the registration statement will not be refunded
to the registrant. The registrant must state in the application that no securities
were sold in connection with the offering. If the registrant applies for withdrawal
in anticipation of reliance on Rule 155(c), the registrant
must, without discussing any terms of the private offering, state in the application
that the registrant may undertake a subsequent private offering in reliance on
Any withdrawn document will remain in the Commission's
public files, as well as the related request for withdrawal.
