In this Wall Street View, our host spoke with David Feldman at the Growth Capital Expo 2015 in Las Vegas, NV.
Regulation A+ has been the hot topic in emerging growth finance since the SEC, on March 25th, 2015, “adopted final rules to facilitate smaller companies’ access to capital. The new rules provide investors with more investment choices,” (Source: SEC Adopts Rules to Facilitate Smaller Companies’ Access to Capital). In this interview, Mr. Feldman describes what these new rules mean, and how it affects MicroCaps and investors.
“We talked about Regulation A+, which is a brand new SEC initiative under the JOBS Act, which is going to allow a simplified IPO up to $50 million with no Blue Sky state interference, and the ability to test the waters with investors before you go; and a scaled disclosure that reduces the amount of information you have to give; everything is going to be just a little bit less, a little bit easier,” Mr. Feldman begins, “I’ve done a lot of reverse mergers, these shell mergers over the years, written books on it, but I’ve always said we wouldn’t need the reverse mergers if IPOs were easier to do, and this holds significant promise of being that easier IPO.”
He continues by explaining the advantages of the new rules, “Reg. A offers a way to get an IPO done with lower cost and simpler disclosure that is going to be much more attractive to some of these smaller companies or biotechs, etc, and we’re very excited about it.”
Mr. Feldman then goes into more detail about Reg. A: educating the broker-dealer network and advice for companies considering this form of financing. For more information about Richardson Patel LLP, go to: www.RichardsonPatel.com
