Reg 14A State law governs the circumstances under which shareholders are entitled to vote. When a shareholder vote is required and any person solicits proxies with respect to securities registered under Section 12 of the 1934 Act, that person generally is required to furnish a proxy statement containing the information specified by Schedule 14A. The proxy statement is intended to provide security holders with the information necessary to enable them to vote in an informed manner on matters intended to be acted upon at security holders' meetings, whether the traditional annual meeting or a special meeting. Typically, a security holder is also provided with a "proxy card" to authorize designated persons to vote his or her securities on the security holder's behalf in the event the holder does not vote in person at the meeting. Copies of definitive (final) proxy statements and proxy card are filed with the Commission at the time they are sent to security holders. For further information about the applicability of the Commission's proxy rules, see Section 14(a) of the 1934 Act and Regulation 14A. Certain preliminary proxy filings relating to mergers, consolidations, acquisitions and similar matters are non-public upon filing; all other proxy filings are publicly available.

Reg 14C Schedule 14C sets forth the disclosure requirements for information statements. Generally, a company with securities registered under Section 12 of the '34 Act must send an information statement to every holder of the registered security who is entitled to vote on any matter for which the company is not soliciting proxies.
