Transcript: “The NYSE Speaks ’13: Latest Developments & Interpretations”

We have just posted the transcript for our recent webcast: “The NYSE Speaks ’13: Latest Developments and Interpretations.”

We have posted memos regarding the NYSE’s revised listing standard regarding quorum in our “NYSE Guidance” Practice Area.

Lots on the SEC’s Reg D Rulemaking

In addition to the loads of memos posted in our “Regulation D” Practice Area, we have this upcoming webcast during which WilmerHale’s Meredith Cross, Morrison & Foerster’s Dave Lynn, Calfee’s John Jenkins, Western Reserve Partners’ Dave Mariano and SecondMarket’s Annemarie Tierney will analyze the SEC’s new rules and predict how market practice will be developing in their wake.

And here are some recent blogs weighing in:

Keith Bishop’s “Advertising Securities With Celebrity Endorsers”
Keith Bishop’s “Advertising Securities As Safe – A “No, No” In California”
Keith Bishop’s “With General Solicitations Soon To Be Permitted, It’s Time To Recall The Commissioner’s Advertising Rules”

Gustav Schmidt’s “Removal of ban on general solicitation and advertising won’t be a license for issuers to say anything they want
Steve Quinlivan’s “Lawmakers Claim SEC Proposals Are Contrary to JOBS Act”

Meanwhile, Reps. McHenry and Garrett have sent this letter to the SEC with a number of questions including requesting that the SEC clarify that companies can rely on new Rule 506(c) following the September effective date without having to comply with the SEC’s new proposals.
