To offer and issue securities, a foreign issuer shall file for effective registration with the FSC, submitting all the relevant documents, after having obtained a consent letter from the Central Bank.
If, from the date of the balance sheet of the financial report submitted by a foreign issuer filing to offer and issue securities until the time of effective registration of the filing, there occurs any event that has a material impact on shareholders' equity or the prices of securities under Article 36, paragraph 3, subparagraph 2 of the Act, the foreign issuer shall publicly announce the event and report it to the FSC within 2 days from its occurrence. In addition, the foreign issuer shall, according to the nature of the event, provide an opinion from a relevant expert, and obtain from the attesting certified public accountant (CPA) a statement regarding the impact of the event on the financial report, and submit the opinion and CPA statement in a report to the FSC.
From the date the FSC and FSC-designated agencies receive the filing documents until the date of effective registration, the foreign issuer may not state or issue any financial or business forecast information to any specified or unspecified person, except for information issued pursuant to statutes or regulations. If the issuer publicly issues any information that is inconsistent with the filing documents, it shall amend the relevant materials and submit them to the FSC.
If there is any change in the particulars subsequent to effective registration, the amendment shall be registered promptly with the FSC.
