  • The President is expected to sign into law this week the new Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, which ushers in a series of reforms to facilitate capital formation by start-ups and other small or emerging enterprises by easing securities law compliance requirements. The principal reforms range from expanding sales techniques for certain private placements, to simplifying initial public offerings for “emerging growth companies”, to reducing some of the ongoing compliance obligations for emerging growth companies during the early stage of status as a public company.
