If the insider is filing an initial report in respect of securities held on becoming an insider or is reporting a change in a security or class of securities previously reported only in paper format, for each security or class of securities held directly or by a particular registered holder, disclose the initial number or amount of securities so held in the field provided for this purpose on the web page titled “File insider report – Opening balance on initial SEDI report (Non-Derivatives)”, or the corresponding web page for derivatives, as applicable. For debt securities, provide the aggregate nominal value of the securities held.
If an opening balance of securities held is required to be disclosed, the information with respect to the “date of transaction” and “nature of transaction” required under items 9 and 10 below will be generated by the SEDI software application. The “Opening/initial balance date” will be the date the insider became an insider or the date the insider entered for all opening balances for securities of this issuer.
If the insider has previously filed a report in SEDI disclosing the balance of the security or class of securities held directly or by a particular registered holder, the opening balance of the security or class of securities so held is generated by the SEDI software application based on all previous reports filed in respect of the particular holding.
