Raising Capital in the United States: A Guide to Using MJDS for U.S. Public Offerings and Periodic Reporting

About this Publication:

This publication is written for Canadian companies considering accessing the U.S. public capital markets through the Multi-jurisdictional Disclosure System (“MJDS”) and for those Canadian companies that are already subject to U.S. public periodic reporting requirements and are eligible to satisfy those requirements through MJDS. Under MJDS, Canadian companies may comply with the disclosure requirements prescribed in Canada (subject to complying with certain incremental disclosure requirements prescribed by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (the “Sarbanes-Oxley Act”) and The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (the “Dodd-Frank Act”), to also satisfy their disclosure obligations in the United States. The disclosure documents filed by these companies will generally only be subject to review by the applicable Canadian securities regulators and will not be reviewed by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
