Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph (f), issue price is defined in sections 1273 and 1274 and the regulations under those sections. (2) Bonds issued for money—(i) In general. The issue price of bonds issued for money is the first price at which a substantial amount of the bonds is sold to the public. (ii) Alternative method based on initial offering price. As an alternative to the general rule in paragraph (f)(2)(i) of this section, if the underwriters have not received orders placed by the public for a substantial amount of tax-exempt bonds on or before the sale date, the issuer may treat the initial offering price to the public as the issue price of the bonds if all of the following requirements are met: (A) The underwriters fill all orders at the initial offering price placed by the public and received by the underwriters on or before the sale date (to the extent the orders do not exceed the amount of bonds to be sold), and no underwriter fills an order placed by the public and received by the underwriters on or before the sale date at a price higher than the initial offering price. (B) The issuer obtains from the lead underwriter in the underwriting syndicate or selling group (or, if applicable, the sole underwriter) certification of the following: (1) The initial offering price; (2) That the underwriters met the requirements of paragraph (f)(2)(ii)(A) of this section; (3) That no underwriter will fill an order placed by the public and received after the sale date and before the issue date at a price higher than the initial offering price, except if the higher price is the result of a market change (such as a decline in interest rates) for those bonds after the sale date; and (4) That the lead (or sole) underwriter will provide the issuer supporting documentation for the matters covered by the certifications in paragraphs (f)(2)(ii)(B)(1) and (2) of this section and, with regard to paragraph (f)(2)(ii)(B)(3) of this section, either documentation regarding any bonds for which an underwriter filled an order placed by the public and received after the sale VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:23 Jun 23, 2015 Jkt 235001 date and before the issue date at a price higher than the initial offering price and the corresponding market change for those bonds, or a certification that no underwriter filled such orders at a price higher than the initial offering price. (C) The issuer does not know or have reason to know, after exercising due diligence, that the certifications described in paragraph (f)(2)(ii)(B) of this section are false. (3) Definitions. For purposes of this paragraph (f), the following definitions apply: (i) Public. Public means any person (as defined in section 7701(a)(1)) other than an underwriter or a related party (as defined in § 1.150–1(b)) to an underwriter. (ii) Underwriter. The term underwriter include— (A) Any person (as defined in section 7701(a)(1)) that contractually agrees to participate in the initial sale of the bonds to the public by entering into a contract with the issuer (or with the lead underwriter to form an underwriting syndicate); and (B) Any person that, on or before the sale date, directly or indirectly enters into a contract or other arrangement with a person described in paragraph (f)(3)(ii)(A) of this section to sell the bonds. (4) Special rules. For purposes of this paragraph (f), the following special rules apply: (i) Separate determinations. The issue price of bonds in an issue that do not have the same credit and payment terms is determined separately. (ii) Substantial amount. Ten percent is a substantial amount. (iii) Bonds issued for property. If a bond is issued for property, the adjusted applicable Federal rate, as determined under section 1288, is used in lieu of the applicable Federal rate to determine the bond’s issue price under section 1274. ■ Par. 4. Section 1.148–11 is amended by adding paragraph (m) to read as follows: § 1.148–11 Effective/applicability dates. * * * * * (m) Definition of issue price. The definition of issue price in § 1.148–1(b) and (f) applies to bonds that are sold on or after the date that is 90 days after the date of publication of the Treasury decision adopting these rules as final regulations in the Federal Register.
