WASHINGTON (June 15, 2009) – Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP represented Keating Capital, Inc. in connection with its initial public offering of up to 10,000,000 shares of its common stock for maximum proceeds of $100 million in a “best efforts" continuous offering.
Keating Capital, Inc.’s offering is a “non-listed" public offering. Similar to shares offered by non-listed real estate investment trusts, Keating Capital, Inc.’s shares will not be listed on a national securities exchange, and as a result, shareholders will not be subject to the share price volatility of the public market. To provide liquidity to its shareholders, Keating Capital, Inc. intends to conduct quarterly tender offers pursuant to its share repurchase program.
Keating Capital, Inc. is a specialty finance company, based in Greenwood Village, Colorado, that intends to invest principally in equity securities, including convertible preferred securities and debt securities convertible into equity securities, of primarily non-public U.S.-based companies.
The Sutherland team representing Keating Capital, Inc. was led by Cynthia M. Krus, John J. Mahon and Anne W. Gray.
