SEC proposes rules on general solicitation and advertising in securities offerings

RELATED TOPICS​

The Securities and Exchange Commission has proposed rules to eliminate the prohibition against general solicitation and general advertising in certain securities offerings.



Under the proposed rules, which are mandated by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, companies would be permitted to use general solicitation and general advertising to offer securities under Rule 506 of Regulation D of the Securities Act and Rule 144A of the Securities Act.

“I believe that the proposed rules fulfil Congress’s clear directive that issuers be given the ability to communicate freely to attract capital, while obligating them to take steps to ensure that this ability is not used to sell securities to those who are not qualified to participate in such offerings,” says SEC chairman Mary Schapiro (pictured).

The Commission will seek public comment on the proposed rules for 30 days. Shortly thereafter, the Commission will review the comments and determine whether to adopt the proposed rules.
