The JOBS Act presentation by The International Law Firm of Fulbright & Jaworski

14 May

I ran across this presentation (The International Law Firm of Fulbright & Jaworski – Events) coming up and thought that anyone that deals with securities needs to be there (if you received a LinkedIn Invitation from me, take a look at it).  Here is an excerpt from their e-mail touting the presentation:

Recent changes in securities laws affect venture capital firms, angel investment groups, start up and early stage technology companies and emerging growth companies planning to go public (under $1.0 billion in revenue).

The JOBS Act enacted in April significantly changes U.S. securities laws, making it easier for companies to raise capital in private placements and to complete IPOs by:

  • Mandating that the SEC adopt rules allowing general solicitation
    of investors for certain private placements;
  • Creating rules to allow crowd funding;
  • Increasing the number of shareholders a company can have before
    triggering public filing requirements;
  • Increasing the size of Regulation A offerings from $5 million to $50 million;
  • Allowing registration statements to be filed confidentially;
  • Allowing IPO companies to “test the waters” to gauge investor interest;
  • Reducing the number of years of financial data required for an IPO from
    five years to two years; and
  • Substantially reducing some of the disclosure requirements for IPOs.

If you may be seeking capital or contemplating an IPO in the near future, come hear how the landscape has changed.
