Frequently Asked Questions
  If a foreign issuer is incorporated and headquartered in two different jurisdictions, what is the relevant jurisdiction for determining whether a disclosure is prohibited by "home country law" as stated on the board diversity matrix?
Identification Number 1814
The reference to “home country law” in the board diversity matrix is a reference to the jurisdiction in which the company is legally organized, consistent with the definition of the company’s “home country” as described in IM-5615-3.  By contrast, the reference to “home country jurisdiction” in the board diversity matrix is a reference to the location of the principal executive offices, pursuant to the definition of an underrepresented individual in Rule 5605(f)(2)(B)(ii).  Therefore, if a company is incorporated and headquartered in two different places, then the company must ensure that it is applying the correct definition to its matrix response.
