You will Learn:

  • The new JOBS Act and SEC requirements permitting public solicitation in exempt Regulation D offers.
  • The methods to help ensure compliance with the new rules.
  • Ways in which issuers can best comply with the rules.

In this quick 10 minute preview of our upcoming live webinar, “Avoiding Potential Pitfalls of Raising Capital,” we will review briefly one of the new and ground-breaking methods a issuer may utilize to raise capital through general advertising and public solicitation in offers exempt from SEC registration under Regulation D. Although the JOBS Act now permits public solicitation under certain circumstances, the SEC has promulgated amendments to Regulation D which further define those circumstances and impose strict requirements which, if not followed, will lead to the loss of the exemption and result in potential liability. This webinar segment will discuss the new regulations and the requirements that must be satisfied.
