SEC Form S-20

SEC Form S-20
A filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), more commonly known as the Registration of Standardized Options Form. It accompanies the submission of a prospectus for equity stock options. In addition to calculating the registration fee required of the issuing company, this form outlines the prospectus requirements for option securities.

While SEC Form S-20 is not as useful as the prospectus that accompanies it, it can be used to quickly identify a security's issuer, the amount of options issued, and the contact information for the security's agent. Investors looking for more in-depth information about an option security's risks, benefits, and company-specific information should refer to the actual prospectus.
