Join us to discuss the SEC’s new rule allowing all issuers the ability to “test the waters” for market interest in a potential registered offering.
Lawyers from Latham’s National Office – including Joel Trotter, a lawyer on the IPO Task Force, who served as a principal author of the IPO-related provisions of the JOBS Act of 2012 – will cover Rule 163B, which allows all issuers (not just Emerging Growth Companies) to gauge market interest in an IPO or other registered securities offering through discussions with qualified institutional buyers and institutional accredited investors prior to, or following, the filing of a registration statement.
This discussion will cover the substance of the SEC's new rule, and highlight items that issuers and underwriters should consider, including:
- Timing and transition issues
- Handling concurrent private placements
- SEC review of materials
- Rules of the road
