This article set forth the compliance parameters of general solicitations and general advertising in Rule 506 private placements, as they existed in 2011. This article called for weaker general solicitations and general advertising requirements in Rule 506 private placements. On July 10, 2013, the SEC revised Rule 506 private placements, as this article predicted. Under the SEC’s revisions, an amendment to Rule 506 permits an issuer to engage in general solicitations or general advertisings in offering and selling securities pursuant to Rule 506, provided that all purchasers of the securities are accredited investors and the issuer takes reasonable steps to verify that such purchasers are accredited investors.
