Confidential IPO Filing System to be Expanded

Posted by Howard Berkenblit on June 30, 2017 at 10:29 AM

GettyImages-506172508.jpgAs of July 10th, the SEC’s Division of Corporation Finance will permit all companies to submit draft registration statements relating to initial public offerings for review on a non-public basis. Previously, this process was only available for “emerging growth companies” under the JOBS Act, although that covered a substantial majority of IPO candidates. 

More notably, this process will now be available for most offerings made in the first year after a company has entered the public reporting system.
