Includes: 5 file units described in ARCSearch within this Series
Function and Use:The agency created these files to contain data filed on Form 144, a notification to the agency of the owner's intent to resell unregistered securities. Form 144 stemmed from Rule 144 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1933, and the Rule provided a mechanism for public resale of restricted and control securities as well as block sales of unregistered securities. The information on Form 144 assisted the agency in its regulatory and enforcement functions and in preventing and uncovering insider trading in securities by both corporations and stockholders. The agency also used the data to cross-reference and match it with data in other systems.
