Produced in partnership with Thomas Vita of Norton Rose Fulbright. The US Securities and Exchange Commission Rule 144A has been in effect since April 1990. This Practice Note looks at the main legal considerations when deciding whether to include a so-called 'Rule 144A tranche' in a company's Main Market initial public offer (IPO). It also looks at other matters that arise when a company is deciding whether to access the US market by offering and selling the shares to 'qualified institutional buyers' as defined in Rule 144A in connection with its Main Market IPO.
Produced in partnership with Thomas Vita of Norton Rose Fulbright. This Practice Note briefly summarises the key provisions of Regulation S of the US Securities Act 1933 as well as the practical implications of relying on Regulation S for English and other non-US lawyers; it is not intended to be a comprehensive discussion of Regulation S.
