SEC FORM F-1 (Registration of Shares for and IPO of certain Non-U.S. Companies):

Form F-1 is the standard registration statement filed on the SEC EDGAR system by foreign private issuers (certain non-US companies) to register additional securities and by private companies seeking to go public through an IPO (Initial Public Offering). The F-1 contains information about the business — financial statements, management, risk factors, etc — specific to the securities offering. Also known as a prospectus, the information in the form allows investors to consider the merits of the offering and make an educated investment decision.

Form F-1 is filed on the SEC EDGAR system in HTML format. The SEC only accepts a simplified version of HTML, requiring the source documents to be converted using specialized SEC EDGAR software (as opposed to simply using the "Save as HTML" option in a word processor). Form F-1 also requires the filing entity to be registered with the SEC EDGAR system and have valid EDGAR filing codes, and pay a fee based on the number and offering price of the shares being registered.

To Retain and Engage Private Placement Markets for an F-1 Registration Statement Filing:

Private Placement Markets regularly works with companies and their legal counsel with respect to the creating and filing of SEC Form F-1; we consider it one of our specialties. Along with the complete custom drafting of the entire SEC Form F-1, our team will proactively assist you in ensuring you have the necessary filing codes to submit the filing and have a plan to pay the required registration fee.

 

After the complete SEC Form F-1 is drafted and approved by your company, Private Placement Markets will convert the approved and finalized F-1 Registration Statement (Prospectus) to SEC EDGAR HTML format, and provide you and your team with an online proof. After obtaining your final approval, we file the Form F-1 with the SEC EDGAR system.

The process of filing and having an F-1 approved by the SEC can take anywhere from two months to a year, depending on amount of material and complexity of the Offering. The entire Private Placement Markets team is available throughout this entire process to prepare and submit subsequent amendments, redlines, and correspondence letters.
