Nebraska Department of Banking and Finance Now Accepting Additional Online Corporation Finance Filings

June 15, 2020 (LINCOLN, NE) –The Nebraska Department of Banking and Finance (NDBF) today announced that the North American Securities Administrators Association’s (NASAA) Electronic Filing Depository (EFD) System has been expanded to accommodate the electronic filing of a greater range of corporation finance materials with the agency.

“We are pleased to continue to modernize and streamline the filing process and offer additional efficiencies for issuers,” said NDBF Deputy Director Claire McHenry.

The new functionality, referred to as “Universal Filing Type,” allows filers to submit electronic filings to the NDBF for a variety of corporation finance offerings not previously available through EFD and to pay associated fees. These offerings include, among others, registrations by coordination and qualification, Regulation A (Tier 1 and Tier 2), crowdfunding (federal and state), and franchise filings. The expanded functionality also facilitates the filing of materials such as issuer-agent registrations.

Developed by NASAA, of which the NDBF is a member, the EFD System was launched in 2014 and was initially used to facilitate the filing of Form D for Regulation D, Rule 506 offerings with state securities regulators and to pay related fees. The system was expanded last year to accommodate Form NF-UIT notice filings for unit investment trusts (UITs) with the NDBF. Future system enhancements are being considered to accommodate the electronic filing of Form NF-Mutual Funds.

The EFD website also enables the public to search and view, free of charge, Reg. D Rule 506 and Form NF-UIT filings made through EFD. EFD is available at: https://www.efdnasaa.org.

“If you have questions about a particular offering, you should contact the NDBF,” Deputy Director McHenry said.

Issuers or investors with questions about EFD can contact the NDBF at DOB.SecuritiesFiling@nebraska.gov or 402-471-3445.
