Form 10
USA
The default form for registering a class of securities under Sections 12(b) or 12(g) of the Exchange Act. Even though Form 10 is the basic Exchange Act registration statement, it is rarely used because of the availability of the shorter and less burdensome Form 8-A, which can be used by issuers required to file reports under Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act. Form 10 of the Exchange Act requires financial statements and other more extensive disclosure than does Form 8-A.
See Practice Note, Registration Statement: Form 8-A (www.practicallaw.com/9-382-2519).
