This year’s SEC small business capital forum will address the most sweeping changes to the emerging growth capital market in 80 years. The input the Commission receives from the market participants attending the forum will help shape those markets for the next 80 years. Coherent and informed engagement by market professionals with the Commission will help ensure the best possible policies are  implemented now to nurture and sustain small company growth – the nation’s engine for innovation and jobs.

Join Morrison & Foerster for an afternoon of pre-forum briefings on the state of legislation, regulation and policy implementation impacting small business finance so that you can be prepared to fully participate in the next day’s meeting.

Partner David Lynn will be participating on a panel entitled “JOBS Act: Title II Implementation,” which will discuss:

  • Proposed changes to “accredited investor” eligibility and definitions and expected impacts on Reg D offerings;
  • Rule 506(c) offerings and the use of general solicitation in equity crowd finance;
  • Investor verification best practices for Title II funding platforms;
  • Open issues relating to the “bad actor” definition; and
  • CFTC limited relief for general solicitation by certain investment funds.

Partner Anna Pinedo will speak on a panel entitled “Challenges for Public Emerging Growth Companies.” Topics will include:

  • Tick size pilot implementation;
  • Microcap Task Force: Reg M Rule 105 and Section 16 reporting sweeps, “algorithmic analysis” in SEC investigations;
  • Primary shelf registration limit expansion; and
  • DTC “chill” relief.
