Magnitude definition

Magnitude means the acceptable amount of a toxic pollutant in water or fish tissue expressed as a concentration.
Magnitude means a quantity characteristic of the total energy released by an earthquake. Commonly, earthquakes are recorded with magnitudes from zero to eight.
Magnitude is a means to distinguish a distribution from ordinary trading and does not imply that a distribution must be large or registered. Therefore, this factor would not necessarily preclude small offerings, and the exemption for permitted underwriting activities should be available for unregistered offerings conducted under Rule 144A or other exemptions, as long as the offerings meet the test for distribution. While the Preamble indicates that the magnitude requirement of the distribution test is not intended to preclude private placements from the scope of the exemption, some private placements would not meet this requirement, and the SEC has requested comment on whether private placements are adequately covered.
