Form S-11 is also known as the Registration Statement under the Securities Exchange Act of 1933 for certain real estate companies. 


SEC Form S-11 and REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts)


An REIT is a company that owns, operates or finances income-producing real estate. Properties that are eligible to be included in REITs are generally commercial spaces like malls. For a company to qualify as a REIT, it must meet certain regulatory guidelines. For example, the company must invest at least 75% of its total assets in real estate, cash or U.S. Treasuries, pay 90% percent of its taxable income in the form of shareholder dividends each year, and be a taxable corporation with 100 or more shareholders.


Like other securities, REITs generally trade on major exchanges. For investors without the funds or capacity to invest in real estate properties individually or build their own portfolio of real estate properties, REITs provide them with a liquid stake.


Most REITs specialize in a specific sector such as office REITs or healthcare REITs. Regardless of specialization, in most cases, REITs operate by leasing space and passing on collected rent payments to its investors in the form of dividends.


Form S-11 is filed on the SEC EDGAR system in HTML format. The SEC only accepts a simplified version of HTML, requiring the source documents to be converted using specialized SEC EDGAR software (as opposed to simply using the "Save as HTML" option in a word processor). Form S-11 also requires the filing entity to be registered with the SEC EDGAR system and have valid EDGAR filing codes, and pay a fee based on the number and offering price of any new shares being registered.
