Background
Section 1

What Are Equity Monetization Transactions?

Equity monetization transactions are derivative-based transactions that allow an investor to receive a cash amount similar to proceeds of disposition, and to transfer part or all of the economic risk and/or return associated with securities of an issuer, without actually transferring ownership of or control over such securities. (The term “monetization” generally refers to the conversion of an asset (such as securities) into cash.)
