Interesting Reads of the Week

Starting now, I’m introducing a new (hopefully weekly) feature of this blog, where I provide a few links to some outside articles and blog posts that I found interesting.  Here goes:

  • Announcements of acquisitions of public companies lead to near-automatic shareholder lawsuits.
  • An account of (apparently) the first Regulation D offering using general solicitation under the new rules.
  • The SEC issued a report mandated by the JOBS Act on disclosure requirements under Regulation S-K, which applies to public company filings under the Securities Act of 1933 and Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
  • A useful reminder that Form Ds, the form filed to report private offerings conducted under Regulation D, are publicly available when filed with the SEC.
