Listen to the recorded version.

On June 19, 2015, the Regulation A+ rules adopted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission will be effective. Regulation A+ will provide an important capital-raising alternative for private companies in the United States and Canada, as well as for Canadian companies with securities listed on a domestic exchange. A Regulation A+ offering may be used in connection with a primary offering of newly issued shares by a company or to resell securities held by existing stockholders. Whether you are contemplating a Regulation A+ offering as a precursor to an IPO, as a liquidity opportunity for existing holders or as an alternative to a traditional IPO, you will need to understand the requirements of the final rule.

Topics Will Include:

  • Tier 1 and Tier 2 offerings;
  • Regulation A+ Basics;
  • Disclosure, financial statement and other filing requirements;
  • Use by Canadian issuers that are non-reporting issuers in Canada;
  • Use by Canadian issuers that are listed in Canada:
  • Ongoing reporting requirements for Tier 2 issuers; and
  • Concurrent Regulation A+ and securities exchange listings in the United States.
