SEC Activities: Update On Rule 415/How To Do Business In The Era Of 415
The SEC recently began to more closely examine many PIPE registration statements in light of their Rule 415 interpretation. As a result, many PIPE registrations are being recharacterized as primary offerings, which threatens to eliminate the ability of companies facing this issue to raise capital. Additionally, other companies are having to significantly cut back on their fundraising in order to avoid running afoul of the Rule. This Panel examines all the latest developments and SEC guidance on this issue as well as other SEC interpretations, stock exchange rule developments and regulatory issues including:

  • Updates on SEC interpretations
  • When will we receive definitive guidance from the SEC?
  • Concrete, real life examples of how we're able to register more securities than 415 would allow
  • Stock exchange rules
  • Understanding how to do business in the era of 415!
