Reg A+ - A Potential Game Changer for Small IPOs
A recent article by Kendall Almerico on the Entrepreneur Magazine website highlights a potentially important but overlooked provision of the 2012 JOBS Act. In the Act is a proposed amendment to Regulation A filings to increase the amount that can be raised to $50 Million and reduce the expense involved by eliminating the requirement to Blue Sky the offer. A key variable that still remains to be determined is the definition that the SEC will use for “qualified purchasers” and whether these individuals will need to meet the requirement of an Accredited Investor or not. While many provisions of the amendment are still up for debate, and the outcome of these discussions could potentially render it dead on arrival, there continues to be hope that Reg A+ will be a major boon for IPOs and make this a much more attractive option for small companies looking to grow with public equity.
