What is a PPM Infographic

By JL Law, Co – Founder verify investor and Georgia Quinn CEO idisclose.com, CrowdFundBeat guest contributors,
The Securities and Exchange Commission’s website states that the two basic objectives of the Securities Act are to (1) require that investors receive financial and other significant information concerning securities being offered for public sale; and (2) prohibit deceit, misrepresentations, and other fraud in the sale of securities. The objectives for the state blue sky laws are typically similar.

To help address these objectives, both federal and state securities laws prohibit a misstatement or omission of a material fact in connection with an offering of securities. These rules, generally known as anti-fraud provisions, have no exemption. They must always be complied with, even if the securities are registered. Though the mandate to disclose information in a non-fraudulent manner seems simple, determining what is “material” which must therefore be disclosed can be difficult. Generally speaking, something is considered material if there is a substantial likelihood that a reasonable investor would consider the fact to be important in deciding whether or not to invest.
A tool to provide these disclosures is what is commonly called a private placement memorandum (PPM). The PPM, which may sometimes be called a prospectus, offering memorandum, confidential information memorandum, or some similar term is a document which discloses information about the securities offering and the risks associated with an investment in the offering.
For many offerings, a distinct PPM may not be technically be required. A company may satisfy its anti-fraud obligations by providing material information to investors through any means of disclosure. However, a PPM is generally useful as it serves to evidence exactly what was disclosed to an investor and what was not. It also often serves as an important marketing tool to investors; while the PPM is fraught with disclosures of multiple ways investors might lose their money, it serves as a tool of validation that the offering is real and professionally conducted.
