Corporations Law — Subsection 741(1)

Exemption and Declaration


Under paragraph 741(1)(a) of the Corporations Law (the Law), the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) hereby exempts a person who offers securities under a disclosure document or a supplementary document in relation to that disclosure document where:


(a)        one or more supplementary documents  (collectively “the old supplementary document”) in relation to the same original disclosure document (“the disclosure document”) have been lodged; and

(b)        the person has lodged a further supplementary document (“the new supplementary document”) which:

(i)         discloses at the beginning that it is issued in substitution for the old supplementary document, as clearly identified; and

(ii)        contains all of the substantive information in the old supplementary document except to the extent that the new supplementary document corrects deficiencies in or updates that information or provides additional information,

from paragraph 719(2)(d) of the Law to the extent that it requires the new supplementary document to state that it is to be read together with any previous supplementary documents.


And under paragraph 741(1)(b) of the Law ASIC declares that from the time the new supplementary document is lodged Chapter 6D shall have effect in relation to the disclosure document as if subsection 719(4) referred to the new supplementary document and did not refer to the old supplementary document.
