On the SEC’s New Intrastate Crowdfunding Rules and the Nanny State

keith-higgins-corpfin-sec-600x443

By Samuel S. Guzik, CrowdFundBeat special guest editor,  Guzik & Associate On October 26, 2016, the SEC’s three Commissioners convened at their headquarters to adopt new rules intended to modernize what had historically been a little used path of raising capital for startups, early stage businesses and community-based enterprises: the so called intrastate exemption. It had its origins in our federal securities regulation legislation adopted back in 1933, which required the federal registration of the sale of securities in the U.S.  absent an exemption from registration. In 1933 Congress, in its wisdom, carved out from the registration requirement those offerings that were purely local in character,…

The Search for Yield, Part 2: Refinancing Commercial Real Estate

high-rise-blog

By  Kyle Engelken, WealthForge Crowdfund  Beat Guestpost, Ten years ago, you could not open your daily financial periodical without being bombarded with articles about the subprime loan crisis. However, quietly in the background, commercial mortgage backed securities (CMBS) were being issued at a record pace with loan to value ratios over 100 percent. In 2005, approximately $169 billion of CMBS loans were issued. Two years later, this number reached $230 billion. Today, analysts are predicting just $50 billion in CMBS issuance for 2016—far less than the nearly $90 billion in loans due for refinancing this year and over $100 billion in 2017.1 Many of the commercial loans…

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…

CROWDFUNDING DEBATE

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,…
