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,…

Crowdfunding Is Just Beginning

Silicon Valley CF 2015 Conference

By Mark Roderick CrowdFunding Beat  Sr. contributing editor and crowdfunding attorney with Flaster/Greenberg PC. For those of us who work in the Crowdfunding space, it can seem as if we’ve covered a lot of ground since April 5, 2012, the day President Obama signed the JOBS Act into law. At a conference in New York earlier this year, a panelist actually referred to Crowdfunding as a “mature” industry. Nothing could be further from the truth. Crowdfunding is actually just beginning. A couple weeks ago I received a promotional email from OurCrowd. Founded by Jon Medved, one of the most successful venture capitalists in the world, OurCrowd has developed into the…

Issuer-Dealer and Agent Registration Requirements for Issuers Not Utilizing a Registered Broker-Dealer for Offers and Sales of Securities under Tier 2 of Regulation A

dealer-agent

By Sara Hanks , CrowdFundBeat  Sr.contributing Guest Editor  CEO/Founder, CrowdCheck, Inc. The Securities and Exchange Commission’s (“SEC”) amendments to Regulation A went into effect on June 19, 2015. Those amendments provided companies not just with greater access to capital through the ability to raise up to $50 million, but also a greater ability to communicate with investors through novel communication rules previously unavailable to issuers in a public offering of securities. Whereas previously, communications for public offerings were limited to the information contained in an offering prospectus or offering circular, the amendments to Regulation A instead allow issuers to freely communicate before any filing or qualification with…

Regulation A Timeline

AAEAAQAAAAAAAAenAAAAJGVlODI3NmFiLTc2MDQtNGZhMy04ZWUwLWMwZWYwM2RhMjMwNw (1)

By Mark Roderick CrowdFunding Beat  Sr. contributing editor and crowdfunding attorney with Flaster/Greenberg PC. “How long will it take?” That’s one of the two questions I’m asked most often about Regulation A. The answer is that if everything goes smoothly, it should take about 20 – 24 weeks from the day an issuer decides to raise money using Regulation A until it begins selling securities. Every company is different, of course, and lots of things can delay the process, but 20 – 24 weeks is a good rule of thumb. With this Regulation A Timeline, I hope to provide issuers and their advisors with a framework for conducting…

Understanding Reg CF: Discussing financial results

Understanding Reg CF: Discussing financial results

By Sara Hanks , CrowdFundBeat  Sr.contributing Guest Editor  CEO/Founder, CrowdCheck, Inc. As we have previously discussed, the Regulation CF disclosure requirement for thefinancial condition of the issuer has the potential to get inexperienced companies in trouble. It is in this section of the disclosure that optimistic entrepreneurs may provide misleading information by not providing the full details of performance measurements, or by not including information on the assumptions underlying any financial projections. Such statements may be misleading in their own right, or may omit information necessary to make the provided information not misleading – also known as securities fraud(link is external) (see paragraph (c)). As we have…

By Rachael Everly, Crowdfund Beat guest contributor, Crowdfunding is often described as a practice to start off online investment campaign by popular people and generate funds or finances for specific related projects.
