On June 19, Regulation A+ will go into effect, replacing Regulation A under Section 3(b) of the Securities Act. Regulation A allowed issuers to raise up to $5 million in a 12-month period through the sale of securities to both accredited and unaccredited investors.

The “mini-registration” was intended to be less onerous than a regular IPO.

Below we examine what these changes mean for your business and how you can take advantage of the new regulations.
