SEC Makes Intrastate Crowdfunding A Little Easier

aaeaaqaaaaaaaaf7aaaajdm2zwu1ywjmlwe2zjgtndljns04mtu3ltzmnza4mde3m2y4ma

By Mark Roderick CrowdFunding Beat  Sr. contributing editor and crowdfunding attorney with Flaster/Greenberg PC. The SEC just adopted rules that should make intrastate Crowdfunding easier, at least if State legislatures do their part. To understand how the new rules help and how they don’t, start with section 3(a)(11) of the Securities Act of 1933, which has been, until now, the basis for all intrastate Crowdfunding laws. While section 5 of the Securities Act generally provides that all sales of securities must be registered with the SEC, section 3(a)(11) provides for an exemption for: Any security which is a part of an issue offered and sold only to persons…

SEC Adopts Final Expanded Intrastate Crowdfunding Rules

US-SEC-gov

By Samuel S. Guzik, CrowdFundBeat special guest editor,  Guzik & Associate Today the SEC unanimously adopted amendments to Rule 147 and Rule 504, and adopted a new Rule 147A, intended to modernize and facilitate local offerings by companies in their home state.  The final rules are much improved from the proposed rules issued in October 2015, in response to virtually unanimous views of rule commentors. The only fly in the ointment is that most states will need to update their legislation in order to be able to take advantage on the new, relaxed rules allowing broad internet solicitation. However, sales are still limited to investors in…

NASAA and Members of Congress Come Together on the Need for the SEC to Expand Intrastate Crowdfunding Rules

dodd-frank-implement

By Samuel S. Guzik, CrowdFundBeat special guest editor,  Guzik & Associate It is rare that I am able to find agreement with the publicly stated positions of the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA). Equally rare – members of Congress who are traditionally strong advocates for “smart” regulatory reform of capital formation by SME’s to find themselves on the same page as NASAA.  However, there appears to be a growing, even overwhelming, consensus that the SEC’s proposed rules to modify current federal restrictions on the intrastate sale of securities – are on the one hand a step in the right direction.  But on the other hand,…

IS THE SEC’S ACCREDITED INVESTOR DEFINITION UN – CONSTITUTIONAL?

a

By Samuel S. Guzik, CrowdFundBeat special guest editor,  Guzik & Associate Many have railed against what can be argued is the irrationality of protecting non-accredited investors from themselves, i.e. the accredited investor definition.   The definition was crafted by the SEC back in the early 1980’s as the centerpiece of what has been the most utilized method for companies to raise capital in an offering not registered with the SEC, Regulation D. In simple terms, if a company wishes to raise capital without registering its offering with the SEC, it can utilize the Regulation D “safe harbor” created by the SEC to sell securities to both accredited…

Intermediaries, Trust and Equity Crowdfunding

FullSizeRender-1 (1)

By Paul Niederer CrowdFundBeat Sr. Contributing Editor Intermediary-controlled trust has been the main game in selling shares and equity since the 1930’s. That is why regulators have latched onto intermediaries, and their existing regimes to regulate the emergence of crowdfunding. However intermediary-less trust is on its way. A truism that is getting stronger and stronger is that “the crowd will catch a bad actor long before the regulator will”. The persistent focus on intermediaries by regulators means that they have not empowered the assistance the crowd can give in keeping equity crowdfunding participants honest. If blockchains become the new way to evidence trusted equity crowdfunding transactions we…
