Event Synopsis:

One of the most important pieces of securities legislation in the past fifty years, the April 2012 enactment of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS Act) has fundamentally and profoundly changed nearly all aspects of capital-raising in the United States.  Many financial historians and journalists have described the JOBS Act as a “financial revolution.”  The JOBS Act principally affected three key areas:  IPO execution, private placements and crowdfunding.  Now, as we approach the two-year anniversary of the JOBS Act, we will discuss how the law has changed the way transactions are executed in each of these arenas.  We will also discuss the changing interplay between IPOs, private placements and crowdfunding and examine each of their roles on the capital-raising spectrum.  In many cases, the JOBS Act raises more questions than answers and has left to the SEC and other regulators the job of interpretation and rulemaking.  This webinar will be invaluable for business professionals and lawyers in navigating the post-JOBS Act world.

The Knowledge Group has assembled a team of leading practitioners who will help you understand the most important aspects of the JOBS Act, including the IPO rules which took effect upon adoption (what’s working, what’s not), the new private placement rules that were effective as of September 23, 2013 and the related private placement proposals, the development of an accredited investor crowdfunding market based on pre-existing exemptions and the new private placement rules, and the proposed crowdfunding and funding portal rules for sales to the general public that were released for comment in October 2013. The panel will present their ideas and share best practices concepts in a two-hour live webcast.  You will have the opportunity to ask questions of the panel.

Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:

·         Highlights of the JOBS Act IPO reforms

·         How the JOBS Act reforms have changed the way IPOs are executed

·         "Emerging Growth Company" defined and explained

·         A look at “testing-the-waters” meetings and transaction integration

·         Changes to the lock-up and research process

·         How the JOBS Act has affected deal timing

·         The post-JOBS Act marketplace development of Internet platforms for offers and sales to accredited investors under Reg D

·         The impact of crowdfunding on angel and VC markets, and the role of crowdfunding for issuers on the road to an IPO

·         Proposed Regulation Crowdfunding

·         Opportunities, risks, burdens and uncertainties for private offerings under the general solicitation rules

·         Challenges in meeting the rule requirements: investor verification, complying with state and foreign rules, heightened risk of fraud claims

·         Potential implications of the proposed Reg D rule changes the SEC issued on the heels of the removal of the ban on general solicitation

·         Reaction to the proposed rules: arguments for and against

·         The SEC’s work plan and the future of the Regulation D market
