Offers and Prospectuses Electronic Repository and Access (OPERA)

In April 2012, MAS began rolling out enhancements to our on-line database that hosted prospectuses for offers of shares, debentures, units in business trusts and collective investment schemes. The Offers and Prospectuses Electronic Repository and Access (OPERA) platform was progressively upgraded to facilitate the electronic lodgment of prospectuses as well as offer documents in respect of mergers and acquisitions under the Singapore Code on Take-overs and Mergers. OPERA now also allows users to submit on-line applications for registration of business trusts.
