You can continue to rely on Securities Act regime exemptions, to the extent they still apply and have not expired, for offers able to be made under the Securities Act during the transition from the Securities Act to the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 (FMC Act) regime.

All existing Securities Act exemptions become redundant at the end of the relevant transition period, regardless of their expiry date, because you will no longer be able to offer or manage securities under the Securities Act regime.
