Statement of reasons

This notice, which comes into force on the day after the date of its notification in the Gazette, extends the Securities Act (Works Superannuation Scheme) Exemption Notice 2009 (the principal notice) from 31 October 2009 to 31 October 2014.

The notice also amends the principal notice to ensure that the exemptions continue to have the same effect if the Securities Regulations 2009, rather than the Securities Regulations 1983, are applicable and to take account of the change of name of one of the employers participating in the Works Superannuation Scheme (the Works scheme).

The Securities Commission considers it appropriate to extend the principal notice for the following reasons:

  • there is a relatively small number of employees in the Works scheme. Although the number of eligible employees who are likely to join the Works scheme is low, the exemption is still required for this limited number of potential eligible employees. Because of the small number of eligible employees, the benefit that would be gained by an investment statement and prospectus would be outweighed by the cost; and

  • the conditions of exemption require that any eligible employees who wish to join the Works scheme receive information relevant to their investment decision.


Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 29 October 2009.
