In response to a mandate from the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act, the SEC has issued “Amendments to Regulation A,” a final rule that allows companies that are subject to the reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) to use the Regulation A exemption from registration under the Securities Act of 1933 for offerings of securities up to $50 million.

As stated in the SEC’s press release on the final rule, the rule also allows Exchange Act reporting companies to “meet their Regulation A ongoing reporting obligations through their Exchange Act reports” and makes conforming changes to Form 1-A.

For more information, see the press release and final rule on the SEC’s Web site.
