The Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS Act) is resulting in significant changes to the way in which public and private offerings are conducted. Some of the JOBS Act changes have not been fully implemented given the need for rulemaking by the SEC and guidance from FINRA. In the aftermath of the Facebook IPO, and the passage of the JOBS Act, legislators are re-examining the IPO process. Will this re-examination lead to delays in implementing the JOBS Act, or lead to a reevaluation of the IPO bookbuilding methods we have relied on for decades?

Please join Morrison & Foerster LLP and Grant Thornton LLP as they address the many issues raised by the JOBS Act.

Topics will include:

  • The background and reach of the JOBS Act
  • Conducting emerging growth company IPOs today
  • Disclosure considerations for emerging growth companies
  • Accounting considerations under the JOBS Act
  • The impact on research analysts and research reports
  • How information is shared or communicated during the offering process
  • Leveling the playing field between institutional and retail investors
