On September 26th, the SEC voted to adopt a new rule that extends a “test-the-waters” accommodation to all issuers. This is a popular tool that was previously only available to emerging growth companies (EGCs). With the new rule, all issuers will be allowed to measure market interest in a possible initial public offering or other registered securities offering through discussions with certain institutional investors prior to, or following, the filing of a registration statement. This new rule is one of numerous SEC initiatives that build on Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (the “JOBS Act”) provisions, which are intended to encourage companies to access public markets.
