Tips: About 120~300 Form 10-12G (and 2~3 times more amendment) are filed each year by 110~260 different filers (2008~2014 statistics). File Form 10-12G does not automatically make a company public. Securities registered by non-public companies on Form 10-12G need to meet other reporting obligations to be traded on any exchanges. However, a private company with securities registered on Form 10-12G may file Form 144 to resell these restricted securities.
