Please join Congressman Patrick McHenry and attorneys Samuel Guzik and David N. Feldman in a one hour Webinar to be held on March 13, 2014, 1;30 pm, EDT,. The Webinar will be moderated by Dara Albright, of NowStreet Wire.
The Webinar will focus on the SEC’s proposed Regulation A+ rules announced in December 2013, promulgated under Title IV of the JOBS Act of 2012. Regulation A+ promises to revitalize the smaller IPO market for raises up to $50 million. As proposed, Regulation A+ would permit a company to conduct an IPO under a streamlined SEC registration process, with lighter ongoing disclosure than is available to companies going public through a traditional SEC registration. The Webinar will address both the fundamentals of Regulation A+, and how it can be expected to be useful for smaller companies, either as a traditional IPO or as a “crowd funded” offering to the public, for offerings up to $50 million.
Congressman McHenry, a principal sponsor of the JOBS Act, is expected to address issues of concern which have arisen following adoption of the JOBS Act in 2012, as well as the prospects for “JOBS Act 2.0,” future legislation to address issues which threaten to impair the effectiveness of the enacted JOBS Act provisions.
This Webinar is the first in a series of Webinars with Samuel S. Guzik and David N. Feldman, both attorneys with Richardson Patel LLP, addressing developing issues relating to the effective utilization of Regulation A+ as a vehicle to revitalize the smaller IPO market. Regulation A+ is expected to be operational in 2014 following the issuance by the SEC of final rules.
