Chapter 250. Rules, Regulations and Forms Relating to Restrictions on the Purchase and Sale of Equity Securities of Domestic Stock Insurance Companies

14VAC5-250-210. Exemption from Subsection C of the Act of Certain Transactions Effected in Connection with Distribution.

Any security shall be exempt from the operation of subsection C of the Act (Section 38.2-214 of the Code of Virginia) to the extent necessary to render lawful under such subsection any sale made by or on behalf of a dealer in connection with a distribution of a substantial block of securities, upon the following conditions:

1. The sale is represented by an over-allotment in which the dealer is participating as a member of an underwriting group, or the dealer or a person acting on his behalf intends in good faith to offset such sale with a security to be acquired by or on behalf of the dealer as a participant in an underwriting, selling or soliciting-dealer group of which the dealer is a member at the time of the sale, whether or not the security to be so acquired is subject to a prior offering to existing security holders or some other class of persons; and

2. Other persons not within the purview of subsection C of the Act are participating in the distribution of such block of securities on terms at least as favorable as those on which such dealer is participating and to an extent at least equal to the aggregate participation of all persons exempted from the provisions of subsection C of the Act by this section. However, the performance of the functions of manager of a distributing group and the receipt of a bona fide payment for performing such functions shall not preclude an exemption which would otherwise be available under this section.
