Jun 18, 2019

On June 18, 2019, the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) issued for comment “Concept Release on Harmonization of Securities Offering Exemptions.”

The concept release seeks public comment on “several exemptions from registration under the Securities Act of 1933 that facilitate capital raising.” As a result of significant changes over the years to the overall framework for exempt offerings, the SEC is asking for feedback on “possible ways to simplify, harmonize, and improve [that] framework to promote capital formation and expand investment opportunities while maintaining appropriate investor protections.”

Comments on the concept release should be submitted no later than 90 days after the document’s publication in the Federal Register. For more information, see the press release and concept release on the SEC’s Web site.
