Listen to Presentation

During this session, we will focus on the existing communications safe harbors under the Securities Act available to private companies contemplating an IPO or other financing and those available to seasoned public companies. We will discuss:

  • Concerns about press releases and research reports in proximity to an offering;
  • Non-deal roadshows;
  • Regulation FD;
  • The “bad news” doctrine; and
  • Research reports.
