Over the Wall Deals/Block Trades/Bought Deals


New York, NY

Although the markets have been improving, issuers that seek financing remain concerned about volatility and the possible effect on their stock price associated with public announcement of a potential financing. As a result, many more public offerings are being marketed differently. We will discuss over-the-wall (or pre-marketed) public offerings, including the process, Reg FD and compliance concerns and other related issues. We also will discuss the mechanics of block trades—when is a trade just a trade, and when is it a distribution? We will also discuss bought deals.
