Investopedia explains 'SEC Form S-2'


SEC Form S-2 was discontinued in 2005; the element that allowed companies to use prior filing information from SEC forms 10-Q, 10-K and 8-K has been incorporated into parts of SEC Form S-1. Investors may still find older S-2 filings online that were submitted prior to 2005.
