Footnotes can be included on all Section 16 forms as well as amendments. Footnotes can add critical information to your original filing or explain corrections on amendments. To use a footnote, you will first need add the footnote to your library as explained in Manage issuer, footnote, security, and signature libraries.
There are two main uses of footnotes:
- To give additional information on a Section 16 form.
- To differentiate a holding from another similar holding.
Add footnotes to a form
To add footnotes to a form, you can type new footnotes or select those that you have stored in the footnote library. If you create a new footnote, you can add it to the library for use in future forms.
Remarks can also be added to a form. These contain information in addition to footnotes. These are added to the bottom of a form.
To add a footnote to a form:
- Hover over the cell where you'd like to add a footnote then click the plus (+) icon that appears and choose Add Footnote.
- In the Add Footnote dialog, choose one of the three available options: Create New Footnote, Select from Library or Reuse Existing Footnote from this Form.
- To use the Create New Footnote option, add or paste the applicable text in the field.
- If you choose Select Footnote from Library, options will be listed at the bottom of the dialog box. Select a footnote and make any desired changes in the field at the bottom.
- If you choose Reuse Existing Footnote from this Form, a list of footnotes already used on the form will appear. Select the desired footnote.
- Finally, click Add to attach the selected footnote to the cell.
