First, it may contractually designate the assignor/ transferor as its bidding agent for the covered stations. Second, the parties to the transaction may agree that the assignee/transferee will use the FRN and password associated with assigned or transferred stations (the ‘‘auction FRN’’) to apply for and participate in the reverse auction. The parties must elect one of these options prior to the beginning of the prohibited communications period on January 12, 2016 and inform the Commission which option they have elected. Alternatively, the parties may wait until after the auction to seek approval and consummate the transaction. 3. With regard to the second option, the auction FRN and password will also provide access to the assignor/ transferor’s data in Commission licensing and other systems associated with that FRN. To prevent the assignee/ transferee from accessing the information related to the stations the assignor/transferor may retain, the assignor/transferor may obtain a new FRN and password for those stations. Additionally, the auction FRN and password will provide access to the assignor/transferor’s bidding information for any stations associated with the auction FRN. Thus, if a transaction involves fewer than all the licenses associated with the auction FRN, the assignee/transferee and the assignor/transferor would both have access to the same bidding information regarding all the licenses associated with that auction FRN that are in the reverse auction. 4. As a result, the parties to a pending transaction must acknowledge that the Commission is not liable for their use of any systems or information accessed as a result of a shared FRN and password under the second option. The parties may also want to contractually limit the assignee/transferee’s right to access and/ or use any such systems or information. Finally, the parties are subject to the rule prohibiting communication of an incentive auction applicant’s bids and bidding strategies. Federal Communications Commission.
