Temecula, CA (PRWEB) August 17, 2012
An upcoming investor conference focused on emerging growth and microcap companies will be held on August 18th, 2012 at the Knobbe Martens offices in Irvine, California. Jay Goth, a principal at Redtail Capital, will be discussing the new JOBS Act, specifically the changes to Regulation A that allows businesses to more readily obtain investment capital and a new procedure that reduces restricitions to IPOs.
The conference will feature presentations from at least six early stage companies currently looking for capital resources and is open only to invited guests that include investment bankers and accredited investors who are looking for early stage investment opportunities.
"Crowdfunding is becoming a hot topic," according to Mr. Goth. "but I think we will find that for many early stage businesses, the Regulation A and Emerging Growth Companies aspect of the JOBS Act will have more impact on our economy and job creation than any other part of the legislation."
Regulation A is an infrequently used exemption that small businesses can utilize to obtain capital from outside investors. The new legislation has increased the amount of money that can be raised under this structure from $5 million per year to $50 million per year. In addition, the creation of an “IPO On-Ramp” allows companies with less than $1 billion in revenues that are considering offering their shares to the public through an IPO several advantages over the traditional IPO route, including confidential initial filing with the SEC, a “testing the waters” opportunity, and more.
"The current rules are being developed by the SEC," stated Mr. Goth. "We have yet to see what the actual rules of the game will be, but the parameters have been set by the legislation. I plan to provide an overview of the legislation as it stands and open up the discussion to the pros and cons of these new funding vehicles."
Accredited investors, investment bankers, institutional investors and broker dealers who are interested in attending the event are encouraged to contact iCFO Capital at (619) 502-9388, as there is limited seating available.
