This presentation will take an in-depth look at the effect of the JOBS Act on IPOs (Initial Public Offerings)and share a new approach to initial public offerings of emerging growth companies.  How will the JOBS Act affect investors, underwriters and brokers, corporations and managers? We will specifically address:

•        The law and securities markets prior to the Securities Act of 1933 - a brief observation
•        The Securities Act of 1933 and the balance struck between regulation and efficient capital-raising through public offerings
•        The Securities Act of 1933 in practice: disclosure and disclosure issues; lessons from the “High Tech Bubble” which burst in 2000
•        The approach taken by the JOBS Act: A new category of emerging growth companies and facilitation of capital-raising by smaller companies
•        Specific provisions of the JOBS Act that affect IPOs and companies seeking to go public
•        The JOBS Act in practice: what changes to IPO practice and risks for companies, underwriters and investors should be anticipated?
•        Some preliminary conclusions about the JOBS Act as policy
