Feldman Quoted in Separate News Articles on Effectiveness and Future of New SEC Regulation A+
Olshan Corporate/Securities partner Spencer G. Feldman was quoted in two separate news articles on the SEC's new Regulation A+. In the risk and compliance blog of The Wall Street Journal, Spencer was quoted in connection with the SEC's new Regulation A+ taking effect on June 19. Regulation A+ provides smaller companies with the ability to conduct mini-IPOs. Spencer provided some background on the new rules, noting that Regulation A+ serves to "supercharge" old, rarely-used Regulation A by increasing its financing limit to $50 million from just $5 million. And, he explained that Regulation A+ consists of two tiers, the higher that preempts state securities laws and the lower that involves a coordinated state securities review which he said was created with "logic and reasonableness." In a separate article appearing on the Law360 website , Spencer was quoted regarding recent lawsuits by states challenging the preemption of state securities laws for Tier 2 Regulation A+ offerings and the desirability of the new rules to smaller issuers and investors. Spencer is quoted as saying that “he will recommend clients consider [the new Regulation A+ rules].” Our client alert on Regulation A+, which was written by Spencer, can be read here.
