In Re: South of England Natural Gas Co. Ltd (40) it was held that a document inviting applications for shares in certain gas companies was an offer to the public even though it was marked "for private circulation only." Conversely, a "circular" through which a company offered to acquire the shares of another company in exchange for its own shares was held not to be a "prospectus" within the statutory definition: Government Stock and other Securities Investment Co. Ltd v Christopher (41).
