TELESEMINAR: Private Placements for Closely Held Businesses, Part 1 – A National Perspective
July 23, 2013
12:00 – 1:00 p.m.
1.00 MCLE hours
Whenever a company raises capital to grow or fund its operations, it is subject to federal securities laws that may require the company’s offering of securities – stock or something else in exchange for cash – to be registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Registration is very time consuming and cost-prohibitive for most middle market companies. Reg. D., however, allows these companies to raises capital in so-called “private placements” without registering their securities with the SEC, provided a series of restrictions are satisfied. These rules have been recently modified under the recent JOBS Act, which liberalized certain requirements for small offerings. This program will provide you with a practical guide to planning private placements, drafting the operative agreements, and understanding the regulatory framework governing them. Part 1 of 2.
