Hi Professor, The videos were informational.
I have two questions: 1. To whom do make your disclosures when you are selling a security? 2. If a corporation with stockholders and one of them want to sell his/her stock, isn’t that stock already registered since it was previously sold?
- For securities laws purposes, the security has to be “registered.” It’s not about you disclosing anything. If it’s a duty to disclose under Rule 10b-5, you disclose to the other party (if there is a duty to disclose). If you cannot disclose (because you don’t know who the other party is), you must abstain from trading.
- Stock doesn’t just stay registered, the basic rule of “register unless exempt” applies to every transaction.
