10:15 Committee Members’ Outlook: What’s on the Horizon for Small Business Capital Formation?
11:00 Secondary Market Liquidity for Investors in Regulation A and Regulation Crowdfunding Companies and for Smaller Public Companies
Companies that raise capital via exempt offerings—sometimes referred to as private offerings—issue securities to investors that are often illiquid. Even for smaller companies that enter the public markets, many of them and their investors continue to face challenges with secondary market liquidity.
What exit opportunities are there for investors in Regulation A and Regulation Crowdfunding deals where the companies continue to provide ongoing reports? What secondary market liquidity challenges do these private and other smaller public companies and their investors encounter? The Committee will explore whether there are changes that could help facilitate secondary liquidity for these investors.
