On April 5, President Obama signed the JOBS (Jumpstart Our Business Startups) Act, which is targeted at improving the access of emerging, high-growth companies to public markets by reducing the costs and regulatory obstacles encountered in IPOs. While recently issued SEC FAQs have begun to explain how JOBS Act initiatives will be implemented, emerging growth company leaders face larger questions about the implications of those initiatives for the IPO process.
Cooley, NASDAQ and AON will be hosting a discussion of what the JOBS Act really means for business leaders. This event will offer a short presentation on the scope and terms of the JOBS Act, followed by an open discussion of issues raised by the Act, including the effect of the Act on the timing and process of IPOs, disclosure obligations, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and investor communications – and any other questions that you have.
