CHAPTER 6D - FUNDRAISING  

PART 6D.2 - DISCLOSURE TO INVESTORS ABOUT SECURITIES (OTHER THAN FOR CSF OFFERS)  

Division 4 - Disclosure requirements  

SECTION 713E   SIMPLE CORPORATE BONDS - PROSPECTUS MAY REFER TO OTHER MATERIAL LODGED WITH ASIC  

713E(1)  
Instead of setting out information that is contained in a lodged document, a base prospectus or an offer-specific prospectus may simply refer to the document (the lodged document ) that has been lodged with ASIC. The reference must:

(a)  identify the lodged document or the part of the lodged document that contains the information; and

(b)  inform people of their right to obtain a copy of the lodged document (or part) under subsection (5) .

713E(2)  
The reference must also include:

(a)  if the information is primarily of interest to professional analysts or advisers or investors with similar specialist information needs:


(i) a description of the contents of the lodged document (or part); and

(ii) a statement to the effect that the information in the lodged document (or part) is primarily of interest to those people; or

(b)  in any other case - sufficient information about the contents of the lodged document to allow a person to whom the offer is made to decide whether to obtain a copy of the lodged document (or part).

713E(3)  
The lodged document (or part) referred to under subsection (1) is taken to be included in the base prospectus, or the offer-specific prospectus, as the case may be.

713E(4)  
A person who wishes to take advantage of subsection (1) may lodge a document with ASIC even if this Act does not require the document to be lodged.

713E(5)  
If the base prospectus, or the offer-specific prospectus, as the case may be, is taken to include a lodged document, or part of a lodged document, under subsection (1) , the person making the offer must give a copy of the lodged document (or part) free of charge to anyone who asks for it during:

(a)  in the case of a base prospectus - the covered period for the base prospectus (within the meaning of section 713C ); or

(b)  in the case of an offer-specific prospectus - the application period for the offer-specific prospectus.
