The JOBS Act
The Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (or JOBS Act) was signed into law by President Barack Obama on April 5, 2012. The JOBS Act has far-reaching implications for the US IPO market, ongoing disclosure obligations of emerging growth companies, the point at which private companies must become registered with the SEC, and the capital formation process for smaller companies. While some implementing regulations from the SEC and FINRA are pending, the JOBS Act will have wide-ranging implications for the US capital markets.
The White Paper: "IR Strategy Series: The Impact of the JOBS Act on Investor Relations"
The White Paper, "IR Strategy Series: The Impact of the JOBS Act on Investor Relations", authored by Crocker Coulson, President and Elaine Ketchmere, Partner of CCG Investor Relations, identifies the key considerations and factors that will drive decision-making by newly empowered emerging growth companies who seek to secure capital funding upon the JOBS Act.
"While we are still waiting on the implementing regulations from the SEC and FINRA, the JOBS Act will have wide-ranging implications for the US capital markets. Companies that meet the category of emerging growth companies, meaning companies with less than $1 billion of revenues, among other benchmarks, will benefit from a lighter regulatory burden as well as enhanced ease of access to capital markets funding," said Mr. Coulson. "We think that the new law is a great first step to restoring the US equity markets as the deepest, most sophisticated, most efficient and most competitive venue for public listings in the world."
