On July 10, 2013, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved final rules: (1) eliminating the prohibition against general solicitation and advertising in certain private offerings of securities and (2) disqualifying issuers from relying on Rule 506 of the Securities Act of 1933 if certain felons and other “bad actors” are participating in such offering. Lastly, the SEC issued a proposal for comment in relation to their ability to evaluate the development of market practices in Rule 506 offerings.

The Knowledge Group has assembled a team who will help you understand the most important aspects of the final regulation. The panel will present their ideas and share best practices concepts in a two-hour live webcast.

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

  • amendments to Rule 506 and Rule 144A to lift general solicitation and advertising ban - New Rule 506
  • amendments to Rule 144A
  • integration with offshore offerings
  • “Bad Actor” disqualification in Rule 506 offerings
  • exceptions from disqualification
  • proposed amendments related to Form D and to general solicitation materials
  • key issues on the approved rules
  • best practices and guidance
