Regulation A: Basics, Amendments & Offering Methodologies

In December 2018, the US Securities and Exchange Commission  amended Regulation A in order to allow companies subject to the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act to make offerings in reliance on the Regulation A exemption. The rule changes were mandated by the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act of 2017 (the Economic Growth Act). Especially for small-cap companies, this may prove a valuable alternative.

In this CLE* webinar, we will cover:

  • Regulation A basics
  • How private companies use Regulation A
  • Regulation A with a listing
  • The amendments to Regulation A
  • Possible offering methodologies for Exchange Act reporting companies using Regulation A
