Six years after enactment of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, its impact in reducing regulatory burdens and barriers to capital formation for start-up, small, and emerging growth companies is ripe for consideration.
JOBS Act amendments to the federal securities laws, and mandated SEC rulemaking, significantly enhanced the ability of small business to raise capital in private offerings to accredited investors, breathed new life into a largely dormant form of limited public offering of up to $50 million via “Regulation A,” established mechanisms for nationwide equity crowdfunding, reduced the regulatory burden for public offerings by newly defined “emerging growth companies,” and altered Exchange Act registration and deregistration requirements for smaller companies.
This webinar series examines how the JOBS Act has impacted capital formation through private offerings, as well as corporate finance for small business issuers generally, and access to the “IPO” market. In each episode, seasoned practitioner panelists explain not only how the JOBS Act has changed the regulatory landscape to date, but also how small issuers can confidently take advantage of the financing opportunities and cost efficiencies in capital formation it has created. Panelists also discuss possible future modifications to the JOBS Act mandated regulatory structure.
