(a) if the company becomes aware that the affected offer document is defective, the company may provide a supplementary CSF offer document, or a replacement CSF offer document, that corrects the defect;


(b) if the company becomes aware that the affected offer document does not comply with section 738K (other requirements for CSF offer documents), the company may provide a supplementary CSF offer document, or a replacement CSF offer document, that corrects the non-compliance;


(c) the company may provide a supplementary CSF offer document, or a replacement CSF offer document, in any other circumstances permitted by the regulations, and in accordance with any conditions prescribed by those regulations.

Note 1: Defective CSF offer documents give rise to liabilities under section 738Y .

Note 2: Regulations for the purpose of paragraph (c) may (for example) limit the kinds of changes that may be incorporated into a supplementary or replacement CSF offer document provided under that paragraph.

Note 3: This section applies to a CSF offer document that has already been previously supplemented or replaced.

738W(2)  
A supplementary CSF offer document or a replacement CSF offer document:


(a) must not be provided otherwise than as permitted by subsection (1); and


(b) if it is provided as permitted by paragraph (1)(a) or (b) - must not incorporate any changes made otherwise than:


(i) for the purpose of correcting a defect or non-compliance as mentioned in that paragraph; or

(ii) as permitted by the regulations; and


(c) if it is provided as permitted by paragraph (1)(c) - must comply with any conditions imposed by regulations made for the purpose of that paragraph. Form of supplementary or replacement CSF offer document

(c) a statement that it is to be read together with the affected offer document.

738W(5)  
If, in accordance with this section, the company making a CSF offer provides the responsible intermediary with a supplementary CSF offer document or a replacement CSF offer document, then subject to subsection (6), the intermediary may:


(a) in the case of a supplementary CSF offer document - publish the supplementary CSF offer document on the offer platform (together with the affected offer document); or


(b) in the case of a replacement CSF offer document - substitute the replacement offer document for the affected offer document on the offer platform.

Note: The responsible intermediary is not required to publish the supplementary or replacement CSF offer document. See also the provisions of section 738X relating to suspension or closure of CSF offers.

738W(6)  
The following provisions apply in relation to a supplementary CSF offer document or a replacement CSF offer document in the same way as they apply to any CSF offer document:


(a) section 738M (consents needed for publication of CSF offer document);


(b) section 738Q (gatekeeper obligations of CSF intermediaries).

738W(7)  
However, subsection 738M(2) does not apply so as to require a fresh consent to be obtained in relation to a statement if the supplementary CSF offer document, or replacement CSF offer document, does not make any material change to either the form of the statement as it was included in the affected offer document, or the context in which it was included.
