SEC RIN: 3235-AJ37 Publication ID: Fall 2010 
Title: Amendments to Regulation M: Anti-Manipulation Rules Concerning Securities Offerings 
Abstract: The Commission proposed amendments to Regulation M under an earlier RIN 3235-AF54, in order to prohibit certain activities by underwriters and other distribution participants that can undermine the integrity and fairness of the offering process, particularly with respect to allocation of offered securities. The amendments sought to enhance the transparency of syndicate covering bids and prohibit the use of penalty bids. The amendments were also intended to update certain definitional and operational provisions in light of market developments since Regulation M's adoption.
