23, 2013, the Securities and Exchange Commission voted unanimously to propose
rules under the JOBS Act to permit companies to offer and sell securities
through crowdfunding. (The 585-page proposed rules are available on the SEC's
site here.) The Business Law and International Sections of the New York State Bar Association partnered in presenting a panel on this late-breaking topic, offered both live in New York City and webcast, taking an early look at key issues raised by this proposal and what it might mean for practitioners.
- Issuers and Investors: Who can make a
crowdfunding offering and who can participate as a crowdfunding investor?
- The Crowdfunding Offering: What are the
disclosure requirements on issuer, financial statement requirements,
integration with other offerings and related issues?
- The Intermediaries: Crowdfunding
portals, broker/dealers and trading issues.
- Crowdfunding in Action: Practical
implementation, costs and liabilities.
