Foreign banks are increasingly seeking to diversify their financing opportunities. With careful planning they can access U.S. investors without subjecting themselves to the securities registration requirements applicable to public offerings, or ongoing disclosure and governance requirements applicable to US reporting companies. Foreign banks may also consider registering with the SEC.

Topics Will Include:

  • Issuances exempt from registration under Rule 144A;
  • Setting up a Rule 144A or bank note program for straight debt;
  • Issuances that rely on registration exemptions provided by the Securities Act Section 3(a)(2) for securities offered or guaranteed by banks; and
  • Registering in the United States.
