(c) applies for and obtains a discretionary exemption from the prospectus requirement.

It is not necessary for a certificate issued in respect of a securitized product to bear a legend stating the resale restrictions; however, the information memorandum used to distribute the securitized product is required to disclose these resale restrictions.”
