Foreign issuers, including corporates and 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 the ongoing disclosure and governance requirements applicable to U.S. reporting companies. Foreign Issuers also may consider registering with the SEC.

During this seminar, the panelists will discuss:

  • The cross-border private placement market;
  • Conducting a cross-border offering;
  • Issuances exempt from registration;
  • Adding a 144A component to existing EMTN or GMTN programs;
  • Offering covered bonds into the U.S. market;
  • Other offering alternatives available to foreign banks;
  • Offering structured products into the U.S. market;
  • Recent changes to the U.S. securities laws facilitating private offerings and SEC registration; and
  • Speakers will provide a comparison of funding alternatives, and discuss advantages and disadvantages, as well as relative costs, investor preferences and pricing considerations.

RSVP by Thursday, March 7 to Birgitta Andersson, Setterwalls at or by phone 08-598 890 67.
