BELLEVUE, WA / ACCESSWIRE / September 27, 2022 / Trilogy International Partners Inc. ("Trilogy") (TSX:TRL), which formerly owned wireless and broadband communications subsidiaries serving Bolivia and New Zealand, announced today that because it no longer qualifies as a foreign private issuer under United States securities laws, its current resale registration of Trilogy common shares ("Common Shares") on Form F-3 will not be available as of the close of business on December 31, 2022.
The termination of the resale registration will not affect the ability of investors who are non-US persons, as defined in Regulation S of the US Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "1933 Act"), to continue to sell their Common Shares in 2023 or thereafter.
US persons who hold Common Shares will continue to be able to sell their shares after December 31, 2022 pursuant to Regulation S of the 1933 Act so long as such sales are made on a designated offshore securities market ("DOSM") such as the Toronto Stock Exchange, on which the Common Shares are currently listed, or a trading board of the TSX Venture Exchange, on which Trilogy would expect to be listed should it no longer qualify for trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange. Regulation S requires that a US person selling unregistered shares on a DOSM not know that the sale has been pre-arranged with a buyer in the US.
US persons may also sell unregistered Common Shares via a private placement.
Trilogy advises US persons who may wish to sell Common Shares after December 31, 2022 to consult with counsel and their brokers to ensure that any sales comply with applicable securities regulations.
