Course Materials

This CLE course will focus on the impact of the SEC changes to Regulation D and Rule 506 which will take effect mid-September, discuss new opportunities for advertisement for private placements, and address "bad actor" provisions and the proposed changes to private placement provisions to increase investor protection.


On July 10, 2013, the SEC approved significant changes to the private placement provisions in Regulation D to permit advertised private placements and to prevent issuers from using the most popular private placement rule (Rule 506) where the issuer or certain related parties are felons or other “bad actors.”

These changes have the potential to transform the private placement market and will become effective mid-Sept. 2013. Counsel should also be cognizant of the SEC's proposed important changes to the private placement provisions to enhance investor protection.

Listen as our panel discusses the significant changes to the private placement provisions recently approved by the SEC allowing for advertised private placements, the new "bad actor" provisions under Rule 506 and the proposed rules to add new requirements to Regulation D.

The panel will review these and other key questions:
