Why You Should Attend:

Join our expert faculty of leading practitioners and regulators as they discuss and analyze the changing regulatory framework and market for private offerings. We begin by addressing the basics of private placements, resales of restricted securities, Rule 144 and Section 4(a)(1-1/2) transactions and block trades. We also address the changes to private and exempt offerings brought about by the JOBS Act, including matchmaking platforms, “accredited investor” crowdfunding, offerings using general solicitation, Rule 144A offerings, and the practical implications of these changes for issuers, broker-dealers and investment advisers. The panelists will discuss the considerations that have led many companies to remain private longer and defer IPOs, while creating liquidity opportunities for holders through private secondary trading markets. Panelists will address the basics of structuring and conducting traditional private placements, late-stage or mezzanine private placements, PIPE transactions, Rule 144A transactions, and institutional debt private placements.
