WRH + Co Teach-in – Regulation A+ Creates New Options for Investors.
Principals of WRH+Co will lead a teach-in for the Investor on Reg A+ at the Sidoti Emerging Growth Conference highlighting the new opportunities to invest in potentially high-growth companies through the new A+ IPO. John Hullar, Managing Partner, Whitney White, Head of Capital Markets, and Kurt Kruger, Head of the Life Science Practice, will lead WRH+Co’s Q&A Session at the Sidoti Emerging Growth Conference at 4:00pm on Thursday, March 31, 2016.
Regulation A+ Creates New Options for Investors
Reg A+ was intended to help revive the small cap market by allowing early stage growth companies to raise up to $50 million in a public offering through a process that provides streamlined and lower-cost access to the capital markets for the issuer and gives the investor the opportunity to participate in the IPO for these potentially high growth companies. Other advantages include a more open selling process with the opportunity to “Test the Waters,” and the transparency of pre-IPO research available to all investors. Seeking a broad audience of investors, Reg A+ offerings may include novel selling practices such as the use of crowd funding, and other internet-enabled methods. Because the securities offered under Reg A+ are freely tradable, Over-the-Counter ATSes (such as OTCQX, provided by OTC Markets Group) and national exchanges like NYSE and NASDAQ will be used to provide secondary market liquidity.
