In addition, where a party filed more than one notification in the same year to acquire voting securities of the same corporation, e.g., filing for the 15 percent threshold and later filing for the 25 percent threshold, only a single consolidated transaction has been counted because, as a practical matter, the agencies do not issue more than one second request in such a case. These statistics also omit from the total number of transactions reported secondary acquisitions filed pursuant to Section 801.4 of the premerger notification rules. Secondary acquisitions have been deducted in order to be consistent with the statistics presented in most of the prior annual reports.
