Capital Raising


SEC Modernizing Private Securities Offerings

The amendments adopted by the SEC should serve to lower the barrier for smaller companies to engage with investors in the private markets and to raise capital from a wider pool of investors. These amendments will also simplify future exempt offerings by eliminating certain potential pitfalls and causes for unnecessary uncertainty. The new amendments, while not seemingly groundbreaking, demonstrate that the SEC is open to continually adapting to the times to facilitate better functioning private markets and the growth of small and medium-sized businesses.
