WASHINGTON (December 13, 2005) – Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP today announced the launch of the "Securities Offering Reform Resource Center" to guide public companies as they wade through the sweeping new rules adopted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission regarding registered offerings, which went into effect December 1, 2005.
"The SEC's securities offering reform is changing the way registered offerings are conducted," says Cynthia M. Krus, a partner at Sutherland and head of Sutherland's Securities/Corporate Governance Group. "There are many new processes and procedures that must be instituted by offering participants to facilitate the successful completion of registered offerings. We expect the Securities Offering Reform Resource Center will help companies navigate this new terrain."
Visitors to the Securities Offering Reform Resource Center can sign-up to request in-person seminars regarding the new rules as well as submit comments and questions. The online Securities Offering Reform Resource Center also includes recent articles, legal alerts and presentations by Sutherland's corporate/securities attorneys as well as news coverage about the reforms. This site will be updated frequently as new information, commentary and legal alerts are posted.
