  • On December 18, 2013, the Securities and Exchange Commission released its proposed rule amendments to Regulation A, which were required by Section 401 of the JOBS Act. Among the changes, the proposed rules create two tiers of exemptions and increase the offering limit from $5 million to $50 million. The proposed rules, often referred to as “Regulation A+,” are intended to increase access to capital for smaller issuers and to modernize the existing regulations.
