Some interesting legal reads for the week of February 10, 2014:
- Regulation A offerings have become rather uncommon occurrences, and “Regulation A+” rules will change things further. Here’s more about what we can expect from Regulation A, according to Daniel Gorfine, writing for MoFo’s Jumpstarter blog.
- On the NY Times’ DealBook: Fantex, the start-up looking to sell stocks tied to athletes’ future earnings is moving forward with football player IPO’s.
- Also on DealBook, a creative way to permit private company employees to cash out on their stock without (it is hoped) creating securities law issues. I’m not sure whether this company sought no-action relief from the SEC, but that’s what I would do.
- From the L&W Capital Market Group’s Words of Wisdom blog, the pros and cons of repeating old risk factors from a 10-K in a subsequent 10-Q. I’m on the side of just including new ones.
