CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) April 28, 2017
The federal securities laws are made up of an interwoven collection of statutes, rules, regulations and judicial precedent. They play a ubiquitous role throughout a company’s life-cycle, relevant from the first issuance of founder shares at organization, to the use of equity compensation to reward and incentivize directors, employees and consultants, to private offerings of equity and debt in corporate finance transactions, to initial public offerings (IPOs), alternative public offerings, in mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and beyond. The Financial Poise Webinar series, Securities Law Made Simple 2017, aims to provide an overview of these laws and their impact on business.
The 2nd episode of the Securities Law Made Simple series, Private Offering Exemptions and Private Placements, (Register Here) airs on May 2nd and features Moderator Vanessa Schoenthaler of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Hammer. She is joined by Julia Vax of Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer, Alissa Parisi of K&L Gates , Craig Mordock of Sheppard Mullin and Robert Rapp of Calfee Halter & Griswold.
The private capital markets have become an increasingly important source of funding for both private and public companies alike. Today total capital raised through private placements surpasses total capital raised in public offerings. What’s more, in recent years legislation like the JOBS Act has made a number of significant changes to laws and regulations governing private capital markets. Consequently, an understanding of the myriad of private offering exemptions and how to properly conduct a private placement is crucial not only for lawyers, but also for executives, managers, directors and anyone involved in corporate finance transactions. In this webinar our expert panel provides you with a high-level overview of private offering exemptions, including the latest developments in this ever-changing area of the securities laws, as well as tangible examples and practical advice on how to conduct a successful private placement.
Other episodes in this series include Securities Law: An Overview (available on-demand now through Financial Poise Webinars) and Public Company Reporting, airing May 23rd. Each episode is delivered in Plain English understandable to business owners and executives without much background in these areas, yet is proven to be valuable to seasoned professionals. Each episode in the series brings you into engaging, sometimes humorous, conversations designed to entertain as it teaches. And, as with all Financial Poise Webinars, each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, so that participants will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all of the episodes.
