SEDAR SUBSCRIBER UPDATE
August 27, 1998

 SEDAR RELEASE 5.0

Release 5.0 (R5.0) of the SEDAR software is planned for implementation on the weekend of October 3-4, 1998. It will be accessible to SEDAR users on the morning of Monday, October 5, 1998.

NEW FUNCTIONALITY

Filing Management

  • The General and General Mutual Funds Cover Pages now have a Page 2, which contains four new mandatory fields.
  • Securities Acquisition Filings (Early Warning) will now use the Third Party Cover Page.
  • Recipient agencies are now defined at the filing type level, not just for the filer and filing categories.
  • Taxes must be paid on market centre fees.
  • Fee schedules have been added for the Vancouver Stock Exchange, Alberta Stock Exchange, Toronto Stock Exchange and Montreal Exchange.
  • Eight new formal correspondence document types have been added for market centres.
  • Filing and document type modifications:
  • Other Reviewable Transactions added to the Category of Filing list for new filings
  • Changes made to Labour Sponsored Investment Fund Corporation Filings (ON)
  • SHAIF (BC LPS 3-27, AB Rule 46-501, VSE) added as a filing type for the Other Issuers category of filer.
  • Filers can now attach to a new filing a document that has already been submitted as part of another filing.
  • Projects from previous issuers are now identified in the Filing Management window.

Profile Management

The Other Issuer profile now includes a Stock Symbol field that is mandatory when the reporting issuer's securities are listed on a Canadian stock exchange. Pre-release 5.0 profiles created but not submitted must be updated to include the stock symbol before you can submit the profiles.

Search Filings

  • Projects from previous issuers are now identified by an asterisk (*) beside the Issuer/Filer Name on the Filings Database Report window.
  • Changes have been made to accommodate the new category of filing and filing types.

Search Profiles

Users can now search for a company using the stock symbol.

Miscellaneous

SEDAR R5.0 offers enhanced installation facilities to eliminate the need for a password reset and enable the migration of profiles and filings. The upgrade saves your user information, allowing you to bypass Startup, whereas reinstallation erases everything and requires that you run Startup again.

PAYMENT OF SUBSCRIBER SERVICES CHARGES AND CDS FILING FEES

Unpaid subscriber service charges and CDS filing fees have been a growing concern of both CDS INC. and the Canadian Securities Administrators. To address this problem, a letter (dated August 24, 1998) was sent to subscribers with overdue payments, informing them that payment must be received by CDS INC in order to deliver the new SEDAR Release 5.0 software packages and related information materials. As noted above, this release is scheduled for implementation on Monday, October 5, 1998.

In order to ensure a smooth transition to Release 5.0, CDS INC. urges all subscribers with outstanding charges to send full payment for overdue charges. SEDAR customer support representatives will be available to assist with any queries to facilitate speedy resolution.
