Information collected and information prepared pursuant to Regulation S–X focus on the form and content of, and requirements for, financial statements filed with periodic reports and in connection with the offer and sale of securities. Investors need reasonably current financial statements to make informed investment and voting decisions. The potential respondents include all entities that file registration statements or reports pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a, et seq.), the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78a, et seq.) or the Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a–1, et seq.). Regulation S–X specifies the form and content of financial statements when those financial statements are required to be filed by other rules and forms under the federal securities laws. Compliance burdens associated with the financial statements are assigned to the rule or form that directly requires the financial statements to be filed, not to Regulation S–X. Instead, an estimated burden of one hour traditionally has been assigned to Regulation S–X for incidental reading of the regulation. The estimated average burden hours are solely for purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act and are not derived from a comprehensive or even a representative survey or study of the costs of SEC rules or forms. Recordkeeping retention periods are based on the disclosure required by various forms and rules other than Regulation S–X. In general, balance sheets for the preceding two fiscal years, income and cash flow statements for the preceding three fiscal years, and condensed quarterly financial statements must be filed with the Commission. Five-year summary financial information is required to be disclosed by some larger registrants. Filing financial statements, when required by the governing rule or form, is mandatory. Because these statements are provided for the purpose of disseminating information to the securities markets, they are not kept confidential.

    Regulation S-X; SEC File No. 270-3; OMB Control No. 3235-0009.

    Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Securities and Exchange 
Commission (``Commission'') has submitted to the Office of Management 
and Budget (``OMB'') a request for extension of the previously approved 
collection of information discussed below.
    Information collected and information prepared pursuant to 
Regulation S-X focus on the form and content of, and requirements for, 
financial statements filed with periodic reports and in connection with 
the offer and sale of securities. Investors need reasonably current 
financial statements to make informed investment and voting decisions.
    The potential respondents include all entities that file 
registration statements or reports pursuant to the Securities Act of 
1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a, et seq.), the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 
U.S.C. 78a, et seq.) or the Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 
80a-1, et seq.).
    Regulation S-X specifies the form and content of financial 
statements when those financial statements are required to be filed by 
other rules and forms under the federal securities laws. Compliance 
burdens associated with the financial statements are assigned to the 
rule or form that directly requires the financial statements to be 
filed, not to Regulation S-X. Instead, an estimated burden of one hour 
traditionally has been assigned to Regulation S-X for incidental 
reading of the regulation. The estimated average burden hours are 
solely for purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act and are not derived 
from a comprehensive or even a representative survey or study of the 
costs of SEC rules or forms.
    Recordkeeping retention periods are based on the disclosure 
required by various forms and rules other than Regulation S-X. In 
general, balance sheets for the preceding two fiscal years, income and 
cash flow statements for the preceding three fiscal years, and 
condensed quarterly financial statements must be filed with the 
Commission. Five-year summary financial information is required to be 
disclosed by some larger registrants.
    Filing financial statements, when required by the governing rule or 
form, is mandatory. Because these statements are provided for the

to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a 
currently valid control number.
