Securities Act of 1933
 
09:49
United States Congress enacted the Securities Act of 1933 (the 1933 Act, the Securities Act, the Truth in Securities Act, the Federal Securities Act, or the '33 Act, Title I of Pub. L. 73-22, 48 Stat. 74, enacted May 27, 1933, codified at 15 U.S.C. § 77a et seq.), in the aftermath of the stock market crash of 1929 and during the ensuing Great Depression. Legislated pursuant to the interstate commerce clause of the Constitution, it requires that any offer or sale of securities using the means and instrumentalities of interstate commerce be registered with the SEC pursuant to the 1933 Act, unless an exemption from registration exists under the law. "Means and instrumentalities of interstate commerce" is extremely broad, and it is virtually impossible to avoid the operation of this statute by attempting to offer or sell a security without using an "instrumentality" of interstate commerce. Any use of a telephone, for example, or the mails, would probably be enough to subject the transaction to the statute. The 1933 Act was the first major federal legislation to regulate the offer and sale of securities. Prior to the Act, regulation of securities was chiefly governed by state laws, commonly referred to as blue sky laws. When Congress enacted the 1933 Act, it left existing state securities laws ("blue sky laws") in place. The '33 Act is based upon a philosophy of disclosure, meaning that the goal of the law is to require issuers to fully disclose all material information that a reasonable shareholder would require in order to make up his or her mind about the potential investment. This is very different from the philosophy of the blue sky laws, which generally impose so-called "merit reviews." Blue sky laws often impose very specific, qualitative requirements on offerings, and if a company does not meet the requirements in that state then it simply will not be allowed to do a registered offering there, no matter how fully its faults are disclosed in the prospectus. Recently, however, NSMIA added a new Section 18 to the '33 Act which preempts blue sky law merit review of certain kinds of offerings. This video is targeted to blind users.

Regulation D (SEC)
 
09:07
In the United States under the Securities Act of 1933, any offer to sell securities must either be registered with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or meet certain qualifications to exempt them from such registration. Regulation D (or Reg D) contains the rules providing exemptions from the registration requirements, allowing some companies to offer and sell their securities without having to register the securities with the SEC. A Regulation D offering is intended to make access to the capital markets possible for small companies that could not otherwise bear the costs of a normal SEC registration. Reg D may also refer to an investment strategy, mostly associated with hedge funds, based upon the same regulation. The regulation is found under Title 17 of the Code of Federal Regulations, part 230, Sections 501 through 508. The legal citation is 17 C.F.R. §230.501 et seq. On July 10th, 2013, the SEC issued new final regulations allowing public advertising and solicitation of Regulation D offers to accredited investors. This video is targeted to blind users.

Regulation S-K Concept Release
 
05:10
Regulation S-K Concept Release- Today is the continuation in a Lawcast series discussing SEC disclosure requirements. On April 15, 2016, the SEC issued a 341-page concept release and request for public comment on sweeping changes to certain business and financial disclosure requirements in Regulation S-K. The Reg S-K Concept Release is part of the SEC Disclosure Effectiveness Initiative mandated by the JOBS Act. The Reg S-K Concept Release is not a rulemaking release but rather provides an indepth discussion of the history and reasons behind Reg S-K and its various provisions and then seeks public input and comment both in general and on specific matters. The Release also drills down on parts of the 100, 200, 300, 500 and 700 series of Regulation S-K rules and provides suggested changes, again seeking public input and comment. Over the next few Lawcasts, I will discuss the Concept Release. The fundamental tenet of the federal securities laws is defined by one word: disclosure. In fact, the SEC neither reviews nor opines on the merits of any company or transaction, but only upon the appropriate disclosure, including risks, made by that company. Regulation S-K, as amended over the years, was adopted as part of a uniform disclosure initiative to provide a single regulatory source related to non-financial statement disclosures and information required to be included in registration statements and reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the Securities Act of 1933. A public company with a class of securities registered under either Section 12 or which is subject to Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act must file reports with the SEC. The underlying basis of these Reporting Requirements is to keep shareholders and the markets informed on a regular basis in a transparent manner. Reports filed with the SEC can be viewed by the public on the SEC EDGAR website. The required reports include an annual Form 10-K, quarterly Form 10Q’s and current periodic Form 8-K, as well as proxy reports and certain shareholder and affiliate reporting requirements. A Section 12 registration statement, including a Form 10 or Form 8-A, may be filed voluntarily or per statutory requirement if the issuer’s securities are held by either (i) 2,000 persons or (ii) 500 persons who are not accredited investors and where the issuer’s total assets exceed $10 million. In addition, companies that file a registration statement under the Securities Act, such as a Form S-1, become subject to Reporting Requirement; however, such obligation becomes voluntary in any fiscal year at the beginning of which the company has fewer than 300 shareholders and less than $10 Million in asset. A reporting company also has record-keeping requirements, must implement internal accounting controls and is subject to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, including the CEO/CFO certification requirements. Under the CEO/CFO certification requirement, the CEO and CFO must personally certify the content of the reports filed with the SEC and the procedures established by the issuer to report disclosures and prepare financial statements.

Filing A Form S-1
 
04:52
Filing A Form S-1- One of the methods of going public is directly through a public offering. In today’s financial environment, many Issuers are choosing to self-underwrite their public offerings, commonly referred to as a Direct Public Offering (DPO). Management of companies considering a going public transaction have a desire to understand the required disclosures and content of a registration statement. This blog provides that information. Pursuant to Section 5 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (“Securities Act”), it is unlawful to “offer” or “sell” securities without a valid effective registration statement unless an exemption is available. Companies desiring to offer and sell securities to the public with the intention of creating a public market or going public must file with the SEC and provide prospective investors with a registration statement containing all material information concerning the company and the securities offered. Currently all domestic Issuers must use either form S-1 or S-3. Form S-3 is limited to larger filers with a minimum of $75 million in annual revenues, among other requirements. All other Issuers must use form S-1. The DPO Regulated Time Periods There are generally three regulated time periods in a DPO: (i) the pre-filing period, which begins when the Issuer decides to proceed with an offering. During this period, counsel prepares the registration statement and prospectus. (ii) the waiting or “quiet period,” which is the time from the filing of the registration statement until it is declared effective. During this time the Issuer can engage in limited marketing (offers only) of the offering through the use of the filed registration statement, which must clearly indicate that it is not the final document (often referred to as a “red herring”). (iii) the post-effective period, in which the registration statement is effective and the Issuer can proceed with sales of the securities registered. In addition to disclosure and regulations related to the offering during all three periods, marketing and public communications of the Issuer are restricted. See the section “Restrictions on Communications Related to DPO’s” below. The S-1 In General There are four primary regulations governing the preparation and filing of Form S-1: (i) Regulation C – contains the general requirements for preparing and filing the Form S-1, including within Regulation Care regulations and procedures related to (a) the treatment of confidential information; (b) amending a registration statement prior to effectiveness; (c) procedures to file a post-effective amendment; and (d) the “plain English” rule. (ii) Regulation S-T – requires that all registration statements, exhibits and documents be electronically filed through the SEC’s EDGAR system. (iv) Regulation S-K – sets forth, in detail, all the disclosure requirements for all the sections of the S-1. Regulation S-K is the who, what, where, when and how requirements to complete the S-1. (v) Regulation S-X – sets forth the requirements with respect to the form and content of financial statements to be filed with the SEC. Regulation S-X includes general rules applicable to the preparation of all financial statements and specific rules pertaining to particular industries and types of businesses. #LawCast
Rule 144
 
05:15
Rule 144- Rule 144 sets forth certain requirements for the use of Section 4(1) for the resale of securities. Section 4(1) of the Securities Act provides an exemption for a transaction “by a person other than an issuer, underwriter, or dealer.” The terms “Issuer” and “dealer” have pretty straightforward meanings under the Securities Act, but the term “underwriter” does not. Rule 144 provides a safe harbor from the definition of “underwriter.” If all the requirements for Rule 144 are met, the seller will not be deemed an underwriter and the purchaser will receive unrestricted securities. Although not set out in the statute, all transfer agents and Issuers, along with most clearing and brokerage firms, require an opinion of counsel as to the application of Rule 144 prior to removing the legend from securities and allowing their sale under Rule 144. The opinion letter must set forth that the facts regarding that Issuer, particular stock and selling shareholder comply with the requirements under Rule 144. Rule 144 only addresses the resale of restricted or control securities, not unrestricted securities or sales directly by an Issuer. Unrestricted securities (such as securities that have been registered under the Securities Act) may be sold without reference or regard to the Rule. Control securities are those securities held by an affiliate of the issuing company, and restricted securities are securities acquired in unregistered, private sales from the issuing company or from an affiliate of the Issuer. Rule 144 provides certain conditions that must be met for sales by both affiliates and non-affiliates which conditions vary depending on whether the Issuer of the securities is a reporting or non-reporting Issuer. The following chart summarizes the Rule 144 requirements... Laura Anthony, Esq.

What Is the Securities & Exchange Commission? Is It Effective? U.S. Finance

Within the SEC, there are five divisions. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the SEC has 11 regional offices throughout the US. The SEC's divisions are:[10] Corporation Finance Trading and Markets Investment Management Enforcement Economic and Risk Analysis Corporation Finance is the division that oversees the disclosure made by public companies, as well as the registration of transactions, such as mergers, made by companies. The division is also responsible for operating EDGAR. The Trading and Markets division oversees self-regulatory organizations such as the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) and all broker-dealer firms and investment houses. This division also interprets proposed changes to regulations and monitors operations of the industry. In practice, the SEC delegates most of its enforcement and rulemaking authority to FINRA. In fact, all trading firms not regulated by other SROs must register as a member of FINRA. Individuals trading securities must pass exams administered by FINRA to become registered representatives.[11][12] The Investment Management Division oversees registered investment companies, which include mutual funds, as well as registered investment advisors. These entities are subject to extensive regulation under various federals securities laws.[13] The Division of Investment Management administers various federal securities laws, in particular the Investment Company Act of 1940 and Investment Advisers Act of 1940. This division's responsibilities include:[14] assisting the Commission in interpreting laws and regulations for the public and SEC inspection and enforcement staff; responding to no-action requests and requests for exemptive relief; reviewing investment company and investment adviser filings; assisting the Commission in enforcement matters involving investment companies and advisers; and advising the Commission on adapting SEC rules to new circumstances. The Enforcement Division works with the other three divisions, and other Commission offices, to investigate violations of the securities laws and regulations and to bring actions against alleged violators. The SEC generally conducts investigations in private. The SEC's staff may seek voluntary production of documents and testimony, or may seek a formal order of investigation from the SEC, which allows the staff to compel the production of documents and witness testimony. The SEC can bring a civil action in a U.S. District Court, or an administrative proceeding which is heard by an independent administrative law judge (ALJ). The SEC does not have criminal authority, but may refer matters to state and federal prosecutors. The director of the SEC's Enforcement Division Robert Khuzami left the office in February 2013.[15] Among the SEC's offices are: The Office of General Counsel, which acts as the agency's "lawyer" before federal appellate courts and provides legal advice to the Commission and other SEC divisions and offices; The Office of the Chief Accountant, which establishes and enforces accounting and auditing policies set by the SEC. This office has played a role in such areas as working with the Financial Accounting Standards Board to develop Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board in developing audit requirements, and the International Accounting Standards Board in advancing the development of International Financial Reporting Standards; The Office of Compliance, Inspections and Examinations, which inspects broker-dealers, stock exchanges, credit rating agencies, registered investment companies, including both closed-end and open-end (mutual funds) investment companies, money funds. and Registered Investment Advisors; The Office of International Affairs, which represents the SEC abroad and which negotiates international enforcement information-sharing agreements, develops the SEC's international regulatory policies in areas such as mutual recognition, and helps develop international regulatory standards through organizations such as the International Organization of Securities Commissions and the Financial Stability Forum; The Office of Investor Education and Advocacy, which helps educate the public about securities markets and warns investors of fraud and stock market scams; The Office of Economic Analysis, which helps the SEC estimate the economic costs and benefits of its various rules and regulations; and The Office of Information Technology, which supports the Commission and staff in information technology, including application development, infrastructure operations. and engineering, user support, IT program management, capital planning, security, and enterprise architecture. The Inspector General. The SEC announced in January 2013 that it had named Carl Hoecker the new inspector general.[16][17] He has a staff of 22. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Securities_and_Exchange_Commission

Securities Laws And Regulations
 
01:13
It is getting easier for small time investors to purchase stocks in the United States. Whether you are a small investor or a large investor, you are covered by federal securities laws. There are many important federal securities laws that govern all aspects of securities trading. There are also regulatory agencies such as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that issue regulations, investigate and make decisions regarding violations of security law.

Section 4(a)(1) Exemption
 
05:06
Section 4(a)(1) Exemption- Just like for an issuer, when a shareholder sells or transfers shares that sale or transfer must either be registered or exempt from registration. The most common exemption relied upon is Section 4(a)(1) and the Rule 144 safe harbor under Section 4(a)(1). Section 4(a)(1) provides an exemption for a transaction "by a person other than an issuer, underwriter, or dealer." Rule 144 provides a non-exclusive safe harbor for the sale of securities under Section 4(a)(1). In the event that Rule 144 is unavailable, a holder of securities may still rely upon Section 4(a)(1). Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act provides an exemption for sales by the issuer not involving a public offering. The issuer itself may not rely on Section 4(a)(1), and selling security holders may not rely on Section 4(a)(2). Case law and the SEC unilaterally conclude that an affiliate which is an officer, director or greater than 10% shareholder may not rely on Section 4(a)(1) for the resale of securities that results in the purchaser receiving freely tradeable shares. In particular, an affiliate is presumptively deemed an underwriter unless that affiliate meets the requirements for use of Rule 144. The Rule 144 requirements cannot always be satisfied by an affiliate, such as when such affiliate desires to sell securities in a private transaction without the use of a broker-dealer. The court system, recognizing this gap in the statutory regime, developed the Section 4(a)(1½) exemption. When an affiliate sells a control block of a public company, they are in essence relying on Section 4(a)(1½) as no other exemption would technically be available. Separately, in 2008, the SEC amended Rule 144 to make its use unavailable for the sale of securities initially issued by a shell company or any issuer that has, at any time, previously been a shell company unless all the requirements of Rule 144(i) are met. These requirements include that the issuer no longer be a shell company, is subject to the reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act for 12 months following the time that it filed Form 10 information indicating it was no longer a shell company, and is current with all Exchange Act reporting requirements. In an effort to gain liquidity in securities of companies that do not meet the Rule 144(i) requirements due to current or former shell status, selling security holders have begun to rely directly on Section 4(a)(1), disregarding the Rule 144 safe harbor. However, as noted, Section 4(a)(1) is not available for use by affiliates, who instead rely on the Section 4(a)(1½) exemption. The same series of cases define both exemptions. In the next Lawcast in this series I will discuss the requirements for use of the Section 4(a)(1) and 4(a)(1½) exemptions. Laura Anthony, Esq.

Are Communications Allowed During the Direct Public Offering Process?
 
05:33
Are Communications Allowed During the Direct Public Offering Process? - One of the methods of going public is directly through a public offering. In today’s financial environment, many Issuers are choosing to self-underwrite their public offerings, commonly referred to as a Direct Public Offering (DPO). Management of companies considering a going public transaction have a desire to understand the required disclosures and content of a registration statement. This blog provides that information. Pursuant to Section 5 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (“Securities Act”), it is unlawful to “offer” or “sell” securities without a valid effective registration statement unless an exemption is available. Companies desiring to offer and sell securities to the public with the intention of creating a public market or going public must file with the SEC and provide prospective investors with a registration statement containing all material information concerning the company and the securities offered. Currently all domestic Issuers must use either form S-1 or S-3. Form S-3 is limited to larger filers with a minimum of $75 million in annual revenues, among other requirements. All other Issuers must use form S-1. The DPO Regulated Time Periods There are generally three regulated time periods in a DPO: (i) the pre-filing period, which begins when the Issuer decides to proceed with an offering. During this period, counsel prepares the registration statement and prospectus. (ii) the waiting or “quiet period,” which is the time from the filing of the registration statement until it is declared effective. During this time the Issuer can engage in limited marketing (offers only) of the offering through the use of the filed registration statement, which must clearly indicate that it is not the final document (often referred to as a “red herring”). (iii) the post-effective period, in which the registration statement is effective and the Issuer can proceed with sales of the securities registered. In addition to disclosure and regulations related to the offering during all three periods, marketing and public communications of the Issuer are restricted. See the section “Restrictions on Communications Related to DPO’s” below. The S-1 In General There are four primary regulations governing the preparation and filing of Form S-1: (i) Regulation C – contains the general requirements for preparing and filing the Form S-1, including within Regulation Care regulations and procedures related to (a) the treatment of confidential information; (b) amending a registration statement prior to effectiveness; (c) procedures to file a post-effective amendment; and (d) the “plain English” rule. (ii) Regulation S-T – requires that all registration statements, exhibits and documents be electronically filed through the SEC’s EDGAR system. (iv) Regulation S-K – sets forth, in detail, all the disclosure requirements for all the sections of the S-1. Regulation S-K is the who, what, where, when and how requirements to complete the S-1. (v) Regulation S-X – sets forth the requirements with respect to the form and content of financial statements to be filed with the SEC. Regulation S-X includes general rules applicable to the preparation of all financial statements and specific rules pertaining to particular industries and types of businesses.

Registered Offerings Using Form S-1
 
04:35
Registered Offerings Using Form S-1- In the last LawCast series I detailed testing the waters in a Regulation A or A+ offering. I’m now moving on to registered offerings using Form S-1. Historically all offers to sell registered securities prior to the effectiveness of the filed registration statement have been strictly regulated and restricted. The public offering process is divided into three periods: (1) the pre-filing period, (2) the waiting or pre-effective period, and (3) the post-effective period. Communications made by the company during any of these three periods may, depending on the mode and content, result in violations of Section 5 of the Securities Act of 1933. Communication-related violations of Section 5 during the pre-filing and pre-effectiveness periods are often referred to as “gun jumping.” All forms of communication could create “gun-jumping” issues (e.g., press releases, interviews, and use of social media). “Gun jumping” refers to written or oral offers of securities made before the filing of the registration statement and written offers made after the filing of the registration statement other than by means of a prospectus that meet the requirements of Section 10 of the Securities Act, a free writing prospectus or a communication falling within one of the several safe harbors from the gun-jumping provisions. “Offers” of securities are very broadly defined. Section 2(a)(3) of the Securities Act define “offer to sell,” “offer for sale,” or “offer” to include “every attempt or offer to dispose of, or solicitation of an offer to buy, a security or interest in a security, for value.” The definition specifically excludes discussions and negotiations between a company and an underwriter or underwriters. The Section 2(a)(3) definition of an offer also specifically excludes research reports by broker-dealers, a provision that was added by the JOBS Act and will be discussed in this Lawcast series. In 2005, in order to modernize the offering process, the SEC adopted the “Securities Offering Reform,” which included adding a number of communication safe harbors from enforcement of Section 5. The JOBS Act added additional provisions allowing for test-the-waters communications by emerging growth companies during the offering process. Test-the-waters communications involve solicitations of indications of interest for an offering prior to the effectiveness of a registration statement. Where Regulation A freely allows, and even encourages, test-the-waters communications, the standard IPO process using a Form S-1 still strictly limits pre-effectiveness solicitations of interest and offering communications overall. As with Regulation A, indications of interest as a result of test-the-waters communications are non-binding. Section 5(a) of the Securities Act prohibits the sale of securities before the registration statement is deemed effective. #LawCast

What Does the Securities and Exchange Commission Do? Rules, Regulations (1989)
 
34:33
Prior to the enactment of the federal securities laws and the creation of the SEC, there existed so-called blue sky laws. They were enacted and enforced at the state level, and regulated the offering and sale of securities to protect the public from fraud. Though the specific provisions of these laws varied among states, they all required the registration of all securities offerings and sales, as well as of every U.S. stockbroker and brokerage firm.[4] However, these blue sky laws were generally found to be ineffective. For example, the Investment Bankers Association told its members as early as 1915 that they could "ignore" blue sky laws by making securities offerings across state lines through the mail.[5] After holding hearings on abuses on interstate frauds (commonly known as the Pecora Commission), Congress passed the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. § 77a), which regulates interstate sales of securities (original issues) at the federal level. The subsequent Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. § 78d) regulates sales of securities in the secondary market. Section 4 of the 1934 act created the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to enforce the federal securities laws; both laws are considered parts of Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal raft of legislation. The Securities Act of 1933 is also known as the "Truth in Securities Act" and the "Federal Securities Act”, or just the "1933 Act." Its goal was to increase public trust in the capital markets by requiring uniform disclosure of information about public securities offerings. The primary drafters of 1933 Act were Huston Thompson, a former Federal Trade Commission (FTC) chairman, and Walter Miller and Ollie Butler, two attorneys in the Commerce Department's Foreign Service Division, with input from Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis. For the first year of the law's enactment, the enforcement of the statute rested with the Federal Trade Commission, but this power was transferred to the SEC following its creation in 1934. (Interestingly, the first, rejected draft of the Securities Act written by Samuel Untermyer vested these powers in the U.S. Post Office, because Untermyer believed that only by vesting enforcement powers with the postal service could the constitutionality of the act be assured.[5]) The law requires that issuing companies register distributions of securities with the SEC prior to interstate sales of these securities, so that investors may have access to basic financial information about issuing companies and risks involved in investing in the securities in question. Since 1994, most registration statements (and associated materials) filed with the SEC can be accessed via the SEC’s online system, EDGAR.[6] The Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is also known as "the Exchange Act" or "the 1934 Act". This act regulates secondary trading between individuals and companies which are often unrelated to the original issuers of securities. Entities under the SEC’s authority include securities exchanges with physical trading floors such as the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), self-regulatory organizations (SROs) such as the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD), the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB), online trading platforms such as the NASDAQ Stock Market (NASDAQ) and alternative trading systems (ATSs), and any other persons (e.g., securities brokers) engaged in transactions for the accounts of others.[7] President Roosevelt appointed Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr., father of President John F. Kennedy, to serve as the first Chairman of the SEC, along with James M. Landis (one of the architects of the 1934 Act and other New Deal legislation) and Ferdinand Pecora (Chief Counsel to the United States Senate Committee on Banking and Currency during its investigation of Wall Street banking and stock brokerage practices). Other prominent SEC commissioners and chairmen include William O. Douglas (who went on to be a U.S. Supreme Court justice), Jerome Frank (one of the leaders of the legal realism movement), and William J. Casey (who later headed the Central Intelligence Agency under President Ronald Reagan). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Securities_and_Exchange_Commission

Is Regulation A a Private or Public Offering?
 
06:01
Is Regulation A a Private or Public Offering?- A question that the SEC and practitioners continue to discuss is whether Regulation A is a private or public offering? The legal nuance that Regulation A is an “exempt” offering under Section 5 has caused confusion and the need for careful thought by practitioners and the SEC staff alike. So far, it appears that Regulation A is treated as a public offering in almost all respects except as related to the applicability of Securities Act Section 11 liability. Section 11 of the Securities Act provides a private cause of action in favor of purchasers of securities, against those involved in filing a false or misleading public offering registration statement. Any purchaser of securities, regardless of whether they bought directly from the company or secondarily in the aftermarket, can sue a company, its underwriters, and experts for damages where a false or misleading registration statement had been filed related to those securities. Regulation A is not considered a public offering for purposes of Section 11 liability. Securities Act Section 12, which provides a private cause of action by a purchaser of securities directly against the seller of those securities, specifically imposes liability on any person offering or selling securities under Regulation A. The general antifraud provisions under Section 17 of the Securities Act, which apply to private and public offerings, also applies to Regulation A. When considering integration, the SEC has now confirmed that a Regulation A offering can rely on Rule 152 such that a completed exempt offering, such as under Rule 506(b), will not integrate with a subsequent Regulation A filing. Under Rule 152, a securities transaction that at the time involves a private offering will not lose that status even if the company subsequently makes a public offering. The SEC has also issued guidance that Rule 152 applies to prevent integration between a completed 506(b) offering and a subsequent 506(c) offering, indicating that the important factor in the Rule 152 analysis is the ability to publicly solicit regardless of the filing of a registration statement. However, in a nod to its technical exempt status, as mentioned in a prior Lawcast in this series, Item 6 of Part I of a Regulation A Form 1-A, which requires disclosure of unregistered securities issued or sold within the prior year, must include a disclosure of all securities issued or sold pursuant to Regulation A in the prior year. On the other hand, Regulation A is definitely used as a going public transaction and, as such, is very much a public offering. A recent SEC white paper refers to regulation A as a mini IPO. Securities sold in a Regulation A offering are not restricted and therefore are available to be used to create a secondary market and trade such as on the OTC Markets or a national exchange. Tier 2 issuers that have used the S-1 format for their Form 1-A filing are permitted to file a Form 8-A to register under the Exchange Act and become subject to its reporting requirements. A Form 8-A is a simple registration form used instead of a Form 10 for companies that have already filed the substantive Form 10 information with the SEC. Upon filing a Form 8-A, the company will become subject to the full Exchange Act reporting obligations which is a pre-requisite to making application to trade on a national exchange. #LegalAndComplianceLLC

The JOBS Act - analyzed and reviewed - A full analysis and review of Regulation A of Section 401 of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups JOBS Act (http://angelkings.com/reg-a-jobs-act). Startup expert and venture capitalist, Ross Blankenship (http://angelkings.com/course) explains the significance and detailed rules of the Regulation A+ (mini-IPO) (http://angelkings.com/invest). Section 401 of the JOBS Act added Section 3(b)(2) to the Securities Act of 1933, which directs the Commission to adopt rules exempting from the registration requirements of the Securities Act offerings of up to $50 million of securities annually. Quoting SEC Chairman, Mary Jo White, "....the mandate of Regulation A+ is to help increase the access of smaller companies to capital. This is obviously a very important objective. Our rule making goal is to make Regulation A+ an effective, workable path to raising capital that... builds in the necessary investor protections.” The SEC’s final rule was adopted on March 25, 2015. Here, the SEC expanded Regulation A into 2 tiers, Tier 1 for offerings of up to $20 million and Tier 2 for offerings up to $50 million. The SEC gave new retail investors the opportunity to invest, as long as the following provisions were abided by from startups: Offering Circular - companies must provide the SEC with audited financials for the previous two years of business. Liquidity - shares in startups are transferable, and not restricted. Proceeds - On Tier 2 offerings, there is an annual offering limit of up to $50 million in equity, debt or convertible securities, including no more than $15 million from selling security holders. For Tier 1 offerings, the annual limit is $20 million, with not more than $6 million from selling security holders.

The new Reg A provides a “safe harbor” rule on integration. You can easily tell whether or not some stock sales you made are determined to be part of the Rule. A Regulation A offering will not be integrated with: prior offers or sales of securities; or subsequent offers or sales of securities that are: registered under the Securities Act, except as provided in Rule 255(e) [abandoned offerings]; made in reliance on Rule 701; [as part of written compensation agreements to employees, and others] made pursuant to an employee benefit plan; made in reliance on Regulation S [offerings outside of the U.S.]; made pursuant to Section 4(a)(6) of the Securities Act [crowdfunded offerings]; or made more than six months after the completion of the Regulation A offering www.TheSecuritiesAttorneys.com Want to know more? – email me at [email protected] Securities-Law.info (240) 200-4529 John E.

SEC Regulation S-K

SEC Regulation S-K- The topic of disclosure requirements under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”) and in particular the requirements under Regulation S-K has come to the forefront over the past two years and has been a regular topic of industry discussion, recommendations and review. On April 15 2016 the SEC issued a 341 page concept release and request for public comment on sweeping changes to certain business and financial disclosure requirements in Regulation S-K. Prior to that in September 2015 the SEC Advisory Committee on Small and Emerging Companies met and finalized its recommendation to the SEC regarding changes to the disclosure requirements for smaller publicly traded companies. In March 2015 the American Bar Association submitted its second comment letter to the SEC making recommendations for changes to Regulation S-K. In early December 2014, the House passed the Disclosure Modernization and Simplification Act of 2014, following which it was bundled into the FAST Act and passed into law on December 4 2015. The Disclosure Modernization and Simplification Act of 2014 became Sections 72001-72003 of the FAST Act. The Disclosure Modernization and Simplification Act of 2014 requires the SEC to adopt or amend rules to: (i) allow issuers to include a summary page to Form 10-K; and (ii) scale or eliminate duplicative, antiquated or unnecessary requirements for Emerging growth companies, accelerated filers, smaller reporting companies and other smaller issuers in Regulation S-K. In addition, the SEC is required to conduct a study within one year on all Regulation S-K disclosure requirements to determine how best to amend and modernize the rules to reduce costs and burdens while still providing all material information. The FAST Act gave the SEC a 180 day deadline to issue rules and regulations implementing the changes. The FAST Act requests that the SEC emphasize a “company by company approach that allows relevant and material information to be disseminated to investors without boilerplate language or static requirements while preserving completeness and comparability of information across registrants” and “evaluate methods of information delivery and presentation and explore methods for discouraging repetition and the disclosure of immaterial information.” This approach is thought of as a principled approach with a concentration on materiality as opposed to just filling in line item information whether relevant or not to a particular company. It is believed, and I completely agree, that simply providing required line item disclosures, that are not relevant to a particular company, dilutes the material important information regarding that particular company and has the unintended consequence of weakening necessary disclosure to potential investors and the public trading markets. Even before the FAST Act, in May 2015, General Electric filed its annual 10-K with a complete make-over from prior years. GE’s 10-K, the first like it, is full of colorful charts and graphics and has scaled down narrative from what was once a virtually incomprehensible document. GE worked with the SEC on the new 10-K utilizing the materiality approach. Regulation S-K... Laura Anthony, Esq.

Proposed S-K and S-X Rule Amendments
 
05:04
Proposed SEC S-K and S-X Amendments- In this Lawcasts series I went through the rule amendments proposed by the SEC on October 11, 2017 and am now summarizing the rule amendments proposed earlier on July 13, 2016, which rules are slated for action this year. On July 13, 2016, the SEC issued a 318-page proposed rule change on Regulation S-K and Regulation S-X to amend disclosures that are redundant, duplicative, overlapping, outdated or superseded (S-K and S-X Amendments). The proposed rule changes follow the 341-page concept release and request for public comment on sweeping changes to certain business and financial disclosure requirements issued on April 15, 2016. The proposed S-K and S-X Amendments are intended to facilitate the disclosure of information to investors while simplifying compliance efforts by companies. The proposed S-K and S-X Amendments come as a result of the Division of Corporation Finance’s Disclosure Effectiveness Initiative and as required by Section 72002 of the FAST Act. Regulation S-K, as amended over the years, was adopted as part of a uniform disclosure initiative to provide a single regulatory source related to non-financial statement disclosures and information required to be included in registration statements and reports filed under the Exchange Act and the Securities Act. Regulation S-X contains specific financial statement preparation and disclosure requirements. In addition to affecting companies filing registration statements (including on Form 1-A in a Regulation A/A+ offering) and those filing reports with the SEC, the proposed S-K Amendments will affect acquired entities, acquirees, investment advisers, investment companies, broker-dealers and nationally recognized statistical rating organizations. The underlying basis of the disclosures required by Regulations S-K and S-X is to keep shareholders and the markets informed on a regular basis in a transparent manner. Reports and registration statements filed with the SEC can be viewed by the public on the SEC EDGAR website. A reporting company also has record-keeping requirements, must implement internal accounting controls and is subject to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, including the CEO/CFO certification requirements. Under the CEO/CFO certification requirement, the CEO and CFO must personally certify the content of the reports filed with the SEC and the procedures established by the issuer to report disclosures and prepare financial statements.
Regulation A; Integration
 
05:44
Regulation A; Integration- Regulation A includes a limited-integration safe harbor such that offers and sales under Regulation A+ will not be integrated with prior or subsequent offers or sales that are (i) registered under the Securities Act; (ii) made under compensation plans relying on Rule 701; (iii) made under other employee benefit plans; (iv) made in reliance on Regulation S; (v) made more than six months following the completion of the Regulation A+ offering; or (vi) made in crowdfunding offerings exempt under Section 4(a)(6) of the Securities Act (Title III crowdfunding, which is not yet legal). The SEC has also confirmed that Rule 152 applies such that a completed exempt offering, such as under 506(b) will not integrate with a subsequent Regulation A offering. In the absence of a clear exemption from integration, companies would turn to the fact specific five-factor test to determine whether the Regulation A+ offering would integrate with one or more other offerings. The following factors need to be considered in an integration analysis: (i) are the offerings part of a single plan of financing; (ii) do the offerings involve issuance of the same class of securities; (iii) are the offerings made at or about the same time; (iv) is the same type of consideration to be received; and (v) are the offerings made for the same general purpose. In addition to the basic requirements that apply to all Regulation A+ offerings, Tier 2 offerings also require: (i) audited financial statements (though I note that many state blue sky laws require audited financial statements); (ii) ongoing reporting requirements including the filing of an annual and semiannual report and periodic reports for current information (new Forms 1-K, 1-SA and 1-U, respectively); and (iii) a limitation on the number of securities non-accredited investors can purchase to no more than 10% of the greater of the investor’s annual income or net worth. It is the obligation of the issuer to notify investors of these limitations. Issuers may rely on the investors’ representations as to accreditation (no separate verification is required) and investment limits. Regulation A allows Tier 2 issuers that follow an S-1 format for their Form 1-A to file a Form 8-A concurrently with the qualification of their Form 1-A. With the filing of a Form 8-A the company registers under the Exchange Act and becomes subject to the full reporting requirements of the Exchange Act. In addition, the Company can make an immediate application to a national securities exchange such as the NASDAQ or NYSE MKT – assuming of course that the company meets the other qualitative and quantitative listing standards. Where the securities will be listed on a national exchange, the limitations on the number of securities that can be purchased by non-accredited investor will not apply. Where a Tier 2 issuer does not file a Form 8-A, they are only required to file ongoing SEC reports under Regulation A – that is the annual and semiannual reports. Although these reports are substantially similar in form to a current annual report on Form 10-K, the company will not be considered to be subject to the Exchange Act reporting requirements for purpose of the shorter Rule 144 holding period.
OTC Markets Issues Comment Letters On 15c2-11 Requirements
 
04:24
OTC Markets Issues Comment Letters On 15c2-11 Requirements- On January 8, 2018, OTC Markets Group submitted a comment letter to FINRA related to FINRA Rule 6432. Rule 6432 requires that a market maker or broker-dealer have the information specified in Securities Exchange Act Rule 15c2-11 before making a quotation in a security on the over-the-counter market. Although I will summarize the salient points of the OTC Markets comment letter in this Lawcast series, I encourage those interested to read the entire letter, which contains an in-depth analysis and comprehensive arguments to support its position. On February 8, 2018, OTC Markets submitted a second comment letter to FINRA, this one related to FINRA Rule 5250. Rule 5250 prohibits companies from compensating market makers in connection with the preparation and filing of a Form 211 application. Rule 6432 is entitled Compliance with the Information Requirements of SEA Rule 15c2-11 Subject to certain exceptions, including the “piggyback exception” which I will explain, Rule 6432 requires that all broker-dealers have and maintain certain information on a non-exchange traded company security prior to resuming or initiating a quotation of that security. Generally, a non-exchange traded security is quoted on the OTC Markets. Compliance with the rule is demonstrated by filing a Form 211 with FINRA. Although the rule requires that the Form 211 be filed at least three days prior to initiating a quotation, in reality FINRA reviews and comments on the filing in a back-and-forth process that can take several weeks or even months. The specific information required to be maintained by the broker-dealer is delineated in Securities Exchange Act Rule 15c2-11. The core principle behind Rule 15c2-11 is that adequate current information be available when a security enters the marketplace. The information required by the Rule includes either: (i) a prospectus filed under the Securities Act of 1933, such as a Form S-1, which went effective less than 90 days prior; (ii) a qualified Regulation A offering circular that was qualified less than 40 days prior; (iii) the company’s most recent annual report filed under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act or under Regulation A and quarterly reports to date; (iv) information published pursuant to Rule 12g3-2(b) for foreign issuers; or (v) specified information that is similar to what would be included in items (i) through (iv). In addition, Rule 6432 requires the submittal of specified information about the security being quoted (for example, common stock, an ADR or warrant), the quotation medium (for example, OTCQB) and if priced, the basis upon which the price was determined. Rule 6432 requires a certification confirming that the member broker-dealer has not accepted any payment or other consideration in connection with the submittal of the Form 211 application as prohibited by Rule 5250. Rule 15c2-11(f)(2) allows a member firm to quote or process an unsolicited order on behalf of a customer without compliance with the information requirements. In such case, the member must document the name of the customer, date and time of the unsolicited order and identifying information on the security. #LegalAndComplianceLLC
