",,,new Reg A+ rules provide an incredible tool for business to build a community of investors..."
Burlingame, CA (PRWEB) March 25, 2015
The SEC Board of Commissioners approved the publishing of the rules associated with the Jobs Act 2012 Title IV *. “These new rules will allow companies to raise up to $50 million dollars in a 12-month period from up to 2,000 investors -- both accredited and unaccredited” said Richard Weintraub, CommunityLeader’s Chief Compliance Officer.
Commonly referred to as Reg A+, the new rules reform the current Regulation A exemption by decreasing costs to companies and increasing their access to “non-accredited” investors. “The structure of the new Reg A+ rules provide an incredible tool for business owners to build a community of investors to achieve their company’s capital requirements,” said Scott Bachman, CommunityLeader co-founder and managing director, client services.
While the new laws provide a path for businesses that are seeking to raise capital with the new exemption from full public registration, significant issues and questions remain about the implementation. “There are legitimate questions about due diligence, investor education and support, and compliance,” explained Joseph Barisonzi, CommunityLeader co-founder and CEO. “The challenge of responsible implementation is now in the hands of the industry.”
