Section 2(a)(10)(a) of the Securities Act provides that a communication is not deemed a prospectus when accompanied or preceded by a prospectus meeting the requirements of Section 10(a) (the final prospectus). This type of communication is Also known as "free writing." Free writing is distinguished from a free writing prospectus as it is not subject to any rules and the SEC requires no filing of free writing.
