Conditional Small Issues Exemption Under the Securities Act of 1933 (Regulation A)
The Securities and Exchange Commission is adopting amendments to Regulation A under the Securities Act of 1933 (the ``Securities Act''). Regulation A provides an exemption from registration under the Securities Act for offerings of securities up to $50 million. As mandated by the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (the ``Economic Growth Act''), the amendments revise Regulation A to permit entities subject to the reporting requirements of Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ``Exchange Act'') to use the exemption and provide that entities meeting the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act will be deemed to have met the reporting requirements of Regulation A. The amendments also make conforming changes to Form 1-A.
