Practical Law Company Webinar: How Will the JOBS Act Affect Non-US Issuers?

22 May 2012 12:00 p.m. - 01:00 p.m.

The Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act includes transformative capital raising and securities law reforms. Find out what these reforms mean for non-US issuers.

Join Practical Law Company and Morrison & Foerster LLP for a free one hour webinar in which we will focus on the practical implications of the JOBS Act for foreign issuers, whether contemplating an IPO, private placement or Rule 144A offering targeting US investors.

The program will cover topics including:

  • What are the advantages available to non-US "Emerging Growth  Companies"
  • Considerations for foreign issuers already listed/public in their home countries
  • Pre- and post-filing communications and differences between "pilot fishing" and cornerstone investing practices outside of the US
  • New documentation issues to consider
  • How will private placements and Rule 144A offerings change going forward

A question and answer session will follow.
