IPOs vs DPOs
Here at Prospectus LLC, our securities consultants and attorneys can help with any business that wants to go public. When it comes to public offerings, there are actually a number of routes to go. The most well known is the IPO, which stands for Initial Public Offering. There is also the DPO, which stands for a Direct Public Offering. For an IPO, the company takes its securities public through the assistance of an underwriter, which is usually a firm such as an investment bank or a broker dealer. In a DPO, a business will aim to obtain funds from public investors without help of any kind from a “middle man.”
Throughout this process, our team will be fully vested in every stage to make sure everything goes smoothly. Our securities attorneys will create documentation and file all proper paperwork with regulatory bodies. Additionally, Prospectus LLC will write your company’s offering circular or memorandum with the intent of acquiring your target goal for capital. When it comes to listing requirements, many placement agents, law firms, and attorneys have asked for our assistance because of our ability to get the job done in an efficient manner.
Private Placement Offerings
The team at Prospectus LLC is an established global leader in the drafting of PPM documentation and offering memorandums, in both the public and private arena. We know how to write an offering document that will raise your company the capital that it needs. We work very well in the private placement market, which is the largest investment arena in the world, largely outdoing the monetary value of public offerings. Close to a trillion dollars a year in capital is raised through private placement. The following list consists of popular SEC rules and methods of raising capital privately.
Reg D: Regulation D covers the SEC rules of private placement exemption. That is, a company raising private capital, if complied with Reg D, can be exempt from registering the, with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Reg D is the most popular regulation used in the United States to raise capital.
506b: A 506b offering, under Regulation D, allows companies to raise an unlimited amount of capital from investors that they have a pre-existing relationship with. 506b offerings do not allow for the public advertisement of selling securities.
506c: A 506c offering, also under Regulation D rules, allows for the raising of an amount of money and permits advertising publicly on avenues such as social media, email, networking face to face etc. Unlike the 506b rule, in a 506c one does not have to have a pre-existing relationship with any investor to solicit funding from them.
Reg A: Regulation A is a method to raise capital while being exempt from various SEC registration requirements. Companies that cannot afford the cost of such filings that traditionally go into Regulation D often make use of Reg A, as small companies seeking under $5 million in capital may not have access to only accredited investors. Reg A allows for non-accredited investors to participate in the offering (as does Reg D but there are rules governing the number of accredited investors permitted in certain Reg D offerings).
Reg S: Regulation S is often more commonly used worldwide to raise capital. It is a “safe harbor” regulation that delineates when a company conducts an offering in another country and the rules governing non-US investment. This is important as it may exempt a company from registering with the SEC upon raising capital. Many non-US companies make use of Regulation S as well, especially in debt issuance offerings.
144A: Another popular private placement method and one of the most liquid of regulations in terms of wealth and capital, is Rule 144A, which allows for QIBs or qualified institutional buyers (they must have a certain amount of net worth to invest) to purchase securities that must be held for two years. Many companies and large corporations and governments make use of Rule 144A, especially for debt issuance. In addition, many companies based on the securities attorney recommendations use the 144A and Reg S exemptions together to raise capital, which nearly 1 trillion dollars yearly is invested under Rule 144A (and more if Reg S is added to the equation).
PIPES: A PIPE is a popular method of both raising capital and receiving capital. In a PIPE, a private individual or company invests in a public security like a stock or in shares. While this may sound like a public company raising normal capital for its public entity, it is not. Many public companies actually conduct private placement offerings and create private placement memorandum documents for the actual capital raise and utilize Regulation D or 144A-Reg S. In return, normally the investors would be given some share or stock incentive, like receiving preferred stock or convertible securities.
Prospectus LLC can assist with any of the noted types of capital raising tools, as well as most others that are not listed here.
