WEST PALM BEACH, Florida, January 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
A recent article in the Wall Street Journal by Ruth Simon revealed that, "Roughly a year after the passage of new rules making it easier for fledgling businesses to tap U.S. capital markets, just a handful of them have succeeded in doing so."
It seems that even though smaller companies have been afforded a tremendous financing opportunity by the passage of Regulation A+, few have taken full advantage of the "mini-IPO."
The most prevalent hurdle is also ironically the simplest to overcome; attorneys and broker-dealers do not fully understand Regulation A+ and are consequently still not comfortable with the new fund-raising option.
Attorney Laura Anthony, founding partner of the corporate law firm Legal & Compliance, LLC, joined Andy Kyzyk, Vice President of Advisor Relations for OTC Markets Group, to host a panel discussion on Regulation A+. The purpose of the webinar was to elaborate on how Regulation A+ works and what issuers, investors, attorneys and broker-dealers really need to know.
