Nasdaq's Regulation A Proposal

The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) proposed a rule that would impose listing requirements for Regulation A companies pursuant to pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”) and Rule 19b-4 thereunder, to adopt a new initial listing requirement for any company applying to list on Nasdaq in connection with an offering under Regulation A of the Securities Act of 1933 (“Securities Act”).

On June 28, 2019, the SEC approved a change to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5210 to impose listing requirements for companies conducting offerings under Regulation A of the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”). The amendment will take effect on July 28, 2019.
