Heads Up — JOBS Act to ease access to investment capital

Published on: 07 May 2012

This issue of Heads Up discusses the 'Jumpstart Our Business Startups' (JOBS) Act. The primary objective of the Act is to “increase American job creation and economic growth by improving access to the public capital markets for emerging growth companies.”

Originally issued on April 2, 2012, this Heads Up has been updated to add:

  • discussion of interpretive guidance (mainly in the form of frequently asked questions (FAQs)) issued on the JOBS Act by the staff in the SEC´s Division of Corporation Finance
  • a new appendix that summarises the FAQs and other developments related to the JOBS Act. Additional updates to the appendix will be made in the future as warranted to reflect new guidance and developments.
