    The rules which are relied upon to raise capital allow for different amounts of capital, different types of investors, and different methods for conducting an offering, are: 504 (up to $1 million), 505 (up to $5 million), and 506 (any amount). Reg D programs were designed to provide an exemption to sell securities in a private capital raise without registering the securities, and also to identify the appropriate documentation for properly accepting and using the capital stock or LLC membership units. Equity offerings are preferred by most early stage companies because there are no debt payments.

    The JOBS Act has changed the practice of law relating to EB-5 offerings. Regional centers and other EB-5 issuers will have more latitude with respect to general solicitations and general advertisements. However, the effort and cost to comply with securities law will increase significantly due to the "reasonable steps" requirement. Proof of "reasonable steps" taken to verify accredited investor status will now be a condition to the availability of the exemption under Rule 506 (c).

    The new Rule 506 changes everything. The SEC has lifted an 80-year ban on general solicitation. Start-ups for the first time can use public advertising to sell private offerings. The new Rule 506 may prove to be the answer to the prayers of star-ups frustrated with existing fund sourcing platforms. But it also has hidden dangers that will cause many issuers to continue to use the "old Rule 506" [506(b)].

    The new rule 506(c) permits general solicitation for the first time in 80 years, under Title III of the JOBS Act. Title IV permits a new form of Regulation A exempt offering. One advantage of the new Regulation A is that it allows you to "test the waters" for interest before undertaking more elaborative filings.
