$tartups & The Jobs Act

Founder- Pro IT Marketing & Video Locators

The question is who will benefit more startups or investors. A general summary of some of the advantages:

• Public advertising and promotion of private securities offerings
• Public issuers with annual revenues of up to $1 billion to be exempt for up to five years from many of the financial control and reporting requirements instituted by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002
• Expansion of privately held companies’ shareholder base to up to 2,000 holders without requiring Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) reporting, allowing a significant expansion of private trading markets
• Sale of securities to investors through “crowd funding” portal sites
• A substantial increase in the size of placements through Regulation A private offerings to large financial institutions
Most see this as a smart investor opportunity to move in advance of what is considered enthusiasm similar to that of pre-IPO.
