Insights Publishes Article “The Struggle to Disclose an Issuer’s Intended Uses of Proceeds in Registered Public Offerings” by Olshan Partner Spencer Feldman
Insights, The Corporate and Securities Law Advisor published an article by Olshan corporate partner Spencer G. Feldman, The Struggle to Disclose an Issuer’s Intended Uses of Proceeds in Registered Public Offerings. The article discusses the importance to investors of understanding the purposes for which an issuer’s net proceeds from a public offering are intended to be used.

Even so, whether or not an issuer has a specific plan for its offering proceeds in place, there are many instances requiring special Use of Proceeds disclosure that an issuer may overlook.
