FDCTech, Inc., a forex and CFDs trading technology provider, announced on Tuesday that it has been granted a public listing status by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The clearance was granted on August 6, 2018, and follows the US regulator making the company’s S1 registration statement effective.
With the new clearance FDCTech, formerly known as Forex Development Corporation, can now list its securities on national exchanges. The New York-based company filed the S1 registration statement in November last year. Since then, the firm has spent the last ten months working to obtain this status.
The S1 registration statement (SEC Form S-1) is used by companies to register their securities before they go public. It is the initial registration for new securities required by the US watchdog, and it must be filed and granted before a company can list its shares on any national exchange. The form requires firms to provide information on the business model and competition of the company, the planned use of capital proceeds and a prospectus of the security, among other details.
