Schedule TO-I

AAA

DEFINITION of 'Schedule TO-I'

This schedule is known as an "issuer tender offer statement." It must be filed by certain reporting companies that make tender offers for their own securities – a "self-tender." In addition, Rule 13e-4, under the 1934 Act, imposes added requirements that an issuer must comply with when it is making an issuer tender offer. This schedule replaced Schedule 13e-4 as of January, 2000.
