The recently adopted FAST Act amends certain provisions of the JOBS Act, the Securities Act, and the Exchange Act.  In this one-hour webcast, we will discuss:

  • The changes to the JOBS Act, including the new 15-day public filing requirement, the financial statement requirement, the EGC grace period, and the 12(g) threshold equalization for savings and loan holding companies,
  • Practical considerations for ongoing or planned EGC IPOs,
  • The Regulation S-K study and the SEC’s ongoing disclosure review initiative,
  • Forward incorporation in Form S-1 registration statements, and
  • The new resale exemption under Section 4(a)(7) and its relationship to the “Section 4(a)(1-1/2) exemption,”
  • Application of the new exemption for block trades, private secondary transactions for pre-IPO issuers, and
  • Other legislative initiatives related to capital formation that are on the horizon
