We estimate that 25% of .24 hours per response (.06 hours) is prepared by the company for a total annual burden of 3 hours (.06 hours per response × 53 responses). Rule 173 (17 CFR 230.173) provides a notice of registration to investors who purchased securities in a registered offering under the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.). The Rule 173 notice must be provided by each underwriter or dealer to each purchaser of securities. It is not publicly available. We estimate that it takes approximately .01 hour per response to provide the information required under Rule 173 and that the information is filed by 5,338 companies approximately 43,546 times a year for a total of 232,448,548 responses. We estimate that the total annual reporting burden for Rule 173 is 2,324,485 hours (.01 hours per response × 232,448,548 responses). Rule 433 (17 CFR 230.433) governs the use and filing of free writing prospectuses under the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.). The purpose of Rule 433 is to reduce restrictions on communications that companies can make to investors during a registered offering, while still maintaining a high level of investor protection. A free writing prospectus meeting the conditions of Rule 433(d)(1) must be filed with the Commission and is publicly available. We estimate that it takes approximately 1.3 burden hours per response to prepare a free writing prospectus and that the information is filed by 2,906 companies approximately 1.25 times a year for a total of 3,633 responses. We estimate that 25% of the 1.3 burden hours per response (.32 hours) is prepared by the company for total annual reporting burden of 1,163 hours (.32 hours × 3,633 responses). Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether these proposed collections of information are necessary for the performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden imposed by the collections of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Consideration will be given to comments and suggestions submitted in writing within 60 days of this publication. Please direct your written comment to R.
