In a global economic climate marked by uncertainty, many foreign issuers are turning to US capital markets for their financing needs.

But the US regulatory framework can present a complex and sometimes confusing prospect, especially for first-time foreign issuers.

IFLR has partnered with Latham & Watkins to publish a book aimed to help these companies and their advisors navigate the regulatory landscape when offering securities in the US.

Drawing on their extensive experience advising on US securities offerings by issuers from Europe, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, the book’s authors provide a practical overview of a wide range of topics.

These include registered offerings, private placements, financial statement requirements, SEC reporting requirements and cross-border tender and exchange offers, as well as the implications of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, Sarbanes-Oxley and Dodd-Frank.


The book – Accessing the US capital markets from outside the United States: An overview for foreign private issuers and their advisors – is available to download for free here.
