The application may be made on division forms or on forms U-1, U-2, and U-2(A).
(B) The division may issue a stop order denying the effectiveness of the registration statement or suspending its effectiveness, provided the division promptly notifies the issuer or its representative by telegram or telephone, and promptly confirms, when it notifies by telephone, by letter or telegram, if the division finds that the business of the issuer is fraudulently conducted, that the proposed offer or disposal of securities is on grossly unfair terms, or that the plan of issuance and sale of securities would defraud or deceive, or tend to defraud or deceive purchasers. The stop order shall set forth the reasons for such order. When the issuer has complied with the requirements of the division, the division shall promptly notify the issuer or its representative by telegram or telephone, and promptly confirm, when it notifies by telephone, by letter or telegram that the stop order has been terminated.
