STICKERING

The act of amending or supplementing the information provided in an official statement on a new issue during the primary offering disclosure period. The amendment typically provides current information regarding new developments affecting the issuer or the issue and/or updated or corrected information regarding matters already discussed in the official statement. The definition arises from the practice in past years of actually attaching a sticker with the additional information to the official statement. Modern stickering usually takes the form of a separate supplemental document. See: OFFICIAL STATEMENT.
