Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

VANCOUVER, Nov. 29, 2013 /CNW/ - The BC Securities Commission (BCSC) is reaching out to small businesses around the province with new online materials and province-wide presentations aimed at informing small businesses about B.C.'s capital raising rules.

"We are offering this information to small business owners because they may not yet have professional advisors who specialize in this area," said Peter Brady, the BCSC's Director of Corporate Finance. "In a nutshell, we want them to understand B.C.'s securities rules so they stay on track and raise money in a timely and efficient way."

The BCSC's publication, Capital Raising for Small Business, is a free guide available for download. It covers a range of topics, including:

  • Defining a security and the key principles of securities laws
  • Discussing differences between the private placement market and public capital markets
  • Explaining exemptions and how they apply when raising capital
  • Describing what information investors may seek from small businesses

For a preview of the guide, you can view a short animated video on the BCSC's new YouTube page (BCSC4Industry). You can download the guide from the BCSC website at www.bcsc.bc.ca.

BCSC staff are also delivering small business capital raising presentations to various groups and organizations across the province in the coming year.
