(5) A filing fee of one hundred dollars.

(C) A registration statement filed under this section becomes effective either at the moment the federal registration statement becomes effective or at the time the offering may otherwise be commenced in accordance with the rules, regulations, or orders of the securities and exchange commission, if all of the following conditions are satisfied:

(1) No stop order is in effect, no proceeding is pending under section 1707.13 of the Revised Code, and no cease and desist order has been issued pursuant to section 1707.23 of the Revised Code;

(2) The registration statement has been on file with the division for at least fifteen days or for such shorter period as the division by rule or otherwise permits; provided, that if the registration statement is not filed with the division within five days of the initial filing with the securities and exchange commission, the registration statement must be on file with the division for thirty days or for such shorter period as the division by rule or otherwise permits.

If the division fails to receive the required notice and required copies of the price amendment, the division may enter a provisional stop order retroactively denying effectiveness to the registration statement or suspending its effectiveness until there is compliance with this division, provided the division promptly notifies the issuer or its representative by telephone or telegram, and promptly confirms by letter or telegram when it notifies by telephone, of the entry of the order. If the issuer or its representative proves compliance with the requirements of this division as to notice and price amendment filing, the stop order is void as of the time of its entry. The division may by rule or otherwise waive either or both of the conditions specified in divisions (C)(2) and (3) of this section. If the federal registration statement becomes effective, or if the offering may otherwise be commenced in accordance with the rules, regulations, or orders of the securities and exchange commission, before all of the conditions specified in divisions (C) and (D) of this section are satisfied and they are not waived by the division the registration statement becomes effective as soon as all of the conditions are satisfied.

If the issuer advises the division of the date when the federal registration statement is expected to become effective, or when the offering may otherwise be commenced in accordance with the rules, regulations, or orders of the securities and exchange commission, the division shall promptly advise the issuer or its representative by telephone or telegram, at the issuer's expense, whether all of the conditions have been satisfied or whether the division then contemplates the institution of a proceeding under section 1707.13 or 1707.23 of the Revised Code, but such advice does not preclude the institution of such a proceeding at any time.
