ACE General Counsel, Jason Behrens, interviews Joe Bartlett, a Co-Founder of our partner VC Experts and Special Counsel to McCarter and English on the fundraising environment for Emerging Growth Companies following the passage of the JOBS Act.
In the video they first discuss nuances of the current legal environment with respect to IPOs relative to the entire JOBS Act. They then focus on whether the overall JOBS Act, which encourages companies to stay private longer, will have a greater impact than the IPO on-ramp provision found in Title 1 of the Act. Will the end result will be more IPOs or fewer?
The second half of the video focuses on the change to the maximum number of shareholders and the potential for secondary trading and new liquidity programs in this new environment as well as the role of registered (and unregistered) finders in the capital raising process.
