IFLR has worked together with Latham & Watkins
to release the book
'Accessing the US capital markets from outside the United
States: an overview of key legal issues’.
The joint initiative is authored by partners from
the firm’s offices around the globe and provides a
comprehensive overview of issues that foreign issuers, their
underwriters and advisors must be aware of when offering and
marketing securities in the US.
Topics range from fundamental issues about the Reg
S safe harbour and foreign private issuer definitions, to the
use of GAAP in financial statements, to practical restrictions
required between investment banking and research analysts.
The book goes beyond offering and marketing
requirements. It identifies when tender and exchange offers
might trigger provisions under US federal securities laws and
has a chapter dedicated to the activities of non-US
broker-dealers operating in the country.
Its coverage of Sarbanes-Oxley and Exchange Act
reporting requirements make it a compliance tool to be kept on
hand after the deal closes.
IFLR subscribers receive a hard copy of the book
with this month’s edition of IFLR magazine. The
book is also free to access online
