Regulation 14D (17 CFR 240.14d–1— 240.14d–11) and Regulation 14E (17 CFR 240.14e–1—240.14e–8) and related Schedule 14D–9 (17 CFR 240.14d–101) require information important to security holders in deciding how to respond to tender offers. This information is made available to the public. Information provided on Schedule 14D–9 is mandatory. Schedule 14D–9 takes approximately 258 hours per response to prepare and is filed by 600 companies annually. We estimate that 25% of the 258 hours per response (64.5 hours) is prepared by the company for an annual reporting burden of 38,700 hours (64.5 hours per response × 600 responses). An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number.

This information is made available to the public. The information provided on Schedule TO is mandatory.
