Revisions to Form S-11 To Permit Historical Incorporation by Reference
We are adopting amendments to Form S-11, a registration statement used by real estate entities to register offerings under the Securities Act of 1933. The amendments permit an entity that has filed an annual report for its most recently completed fiscal year and that is current in its reporting obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 to incorporate by reference into Form S-11 information from its previously filed Exchange Act reports and documents. The amendments are identical to amendments to Form S-1 and Form F-1 previously adopted by the Commission and effective as of December 1, 2005.
