From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The term quiet period, also known as a waiting period has "historically [meant], a quiet period extended from the time a company files a registration statement with the SEC until SEC staff declared the registration statement effective. During that period, the federal securities laws limited what information a company and related parties can release to the public." [1]

Under the rules of the Securities Act of 1933, as modified June 29, 2005, electronic communications, including electronic road shows and information located on or hyperlinked to an issuer's website are also governed. The rules changes of June 29, 2005 also included various changes which "liberalize permitted offering activity and communications to allow more information" for certain qualifying organizations.
