Targets were supplied by the La Silla-Quest survey (see Hadjiyska et al., ATel #3812), the OGLE-IV Transient Search (see Wyrzykowski et al., ATEL #4495), the Catalina Real-time Transient Survey (http://crts.caltech.edu/) and TOCP webpages. All observations were performed on the ESO New Technology Telescope at La Silla on 2013 August 26 (UT), using EFOSC2 and Grism 13 (3985-9315A, 18A resolution). Classifications were done with SNID (Blondin & Tonry, 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024) and GELATO (Harutyunyan et al., 2008, A&A, 488, 383). Classification spectra can be obtained from http://www.pessto.org via WISeREP (Yaron & Gal-Yam, 2012, PASP, 124, 668). Name | RA (J2000) | Dec (J2000) | Disc. Date | Disc.
