A registration statement under The Securities Exchange Act of 1933, Form S-11 must be filed with the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) by any real estate investment trust (REIT) or other company owning real estate for investment purposes, if it intends to offer securities.
A trust or company files the completed Form S-11 in the SEC online filing system, EDGAR (Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis and Retrieval). Its purpose is not only to register the securities to be issued, but also to disclose crucial information to all potential investors where it can be publicly viewed.
Form S-11 is submitted with information including prospectus details, pricing, plans for use of proceeds, operating data, selected financial data, investment and other financial policies and other reporting described by SEC Regulation S-K.
With nearly 50 years navigating complex regulated industries, and as one of the first companies to actively engage with EDGAR and the XBRL mandate, Merrill provides superior expertise and technology solutions to manage financial disclosure and reporting with absolute precision and unbeatable accuracy.
