On September 26th, the SEC's Division of Corporation Finance announced that beginning October 1, 2012, emerging growth companies and private issuers may choose to submit their JOBS Act draft registration statements either using the current secure email system or via a new EDGAR system. Once the EDGAR Filer Manual for EDGAR Release 12.2 becomes effective, filing on EDGAR will become mandatory. Corporation Finance also published a guide explaining how to use EDGAR to file draft registration statements.
