The Financial Markets Authority has extended the term of the Securities Act (Australian Registered Managed Investment Schemes) Exemption Notice 2008 from 30 September 2013 to 30 September 2017 and updated the notice with references to the Securities Regulations 2009. The amendment notice is available here.

This notice has been a long-standing class exemption allowing certain Australian issuers (which are not adequately covered by the trans-Tasman mutual recognition of securities regime) to extend offers of securities to members of the public in New Zealand using Australian offer documents, particularly offers of securities in Australian registered managed investment schemes under distribution reinvestment plans.
