Item 1: Facilitating Capital Formation and Expanding Investment Opportunities by Improving Access to Capital in Private Markets
Offices: Division of Corporation Finance
Staff: William Hinman, Jennifer Zepralka, Anthony Barone, John Byrne, and Steven G. Hearne

The Commission will consider whether to adopt rule amendments to facilitate capital formation and increase opportunities for investors by expanding access to capital for small and medium-sized businesses and entrepreneurs across the United States. Specifically, the Commission will consider whether to adopt rule amendments to simplify, harmonize, and improve certain aspects of the framework for exemptions from registration under the Securities Act of 1933 to promote capital formation while preserving or enhancing important investor protections and reducing complexities in the exempt offering framework that may impede access to investment opportunities for investors and access to capital for businesses and entrepreneurs.
