Proposed Rules Eliminating the Prohibition Against General Solicitation and Advertising in Rule 506 Offerings Meet With Opposition by NASAA
As required by Title II of the JOBS Act, on August 29, 2012, the SEC has published proposed rules eliminating the prohibition against general solicitation and advertising in Rules 506. I previously wrote blogs outlining the content of the proposed rules. The rules are currently in the public comment period.
As I previously noted, the SEC proposed simple modifications to Regulation D mirroring the JOBS Act requirement stating that it is “proposing only those rule and form amendments that are, in our view, necessary to implement the mandate” in the JOBS Act. The entire text of the rule release is available on the SEC website.
