In April 2012, the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS Act) was signed into law. The JOBS Act makes it easier and less burdensome for companies that qualify as "emerging growth companies" to raise capital through initial public offerings (IPOs) and also reduces their SEC disclosure obligations for up to five years following the completion of their IPOs. In May 2012, the SEC staff issued initial interpretive advice that extends these JOBS Act provisions to business development companies (BDCs) that qualify as "emerging growth companies." What exactly does this mean for prospective BDCs, and what are the implications for the BDC industry going forward?
On Wednesday, May 23, join Sutherland's BDC team for a Quick Call to learn more about the brave new world of BDC IPOs after the JOBS Act. Partners Steven B. Boehm, Cynthia M. Krus, John J. Mahon and Harry S. Pangas are leading the discussion.
