WEST PALM BEACH, Florida, December 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Less than a year ago, Regulations A+ Offerings were little more than a novelty in the public offering marketplace. Now, they are as prolific as sand at the beach.  

Securities Attorney Laura Anthony, founding partner of the corporate and securities law firm Legal & Compliance, LLC commented.

"Industry professionals now comprehend the potential and benefits of using Regulation A+ to complete a public offering," attorney Anthony said.  "The ability to use broad, test-the-waters communications to a diverse audience including both accredited and unaccredited investors is a major advantage. This, combined with state law pre-emption of the offering process, has made Regulation A+ a very attractive method of completing an initial public offering. By using Regulation A+ a company can complete an offering of up to $50 million and have their securities trade on either the OTC Markets or a national exchange such as the NASDAQ or NYSE MKY upon completion of the offering."
