David Drake of The Soho Loft will discuss at the Thomson Reuter’s Buyouts Texas conference in Dallas on November 13-14 how the JOBS Act and Dodd Frank Act will affect private equity firms and companies globally.
An industry thought leader in capital creation—particularly in terms of the opportunities opened up under the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act—The Soho Loft will cover how the emerging regulatory landscape and SEC expectations around the implementation of regulations will affect private equity buyout firms and the strategies of international funds and firms in the US for the next 12 months.
The founder and head of both The Soho Loft and LDJ Capital, David Drake says, “We expect financial media to explode in the next 12 months with the largest influx of M&A and activity coming from international firms and funds looking to transact and also leverage the new laws being implemented.”
Buyouts Magazine conferences have run since 2007, with four to five events held annually at locations across the United States. According to Thomson Reuters, “Buyouts Magazine’s conference business marries two of the LBO industries most critical needs—quality content and quality networking—in its growing slate of events.”Among the capital creation opportunities Drake highlights are, “The Onramp IPO title of the JOBS Act reduces Sarbanes Oxley Act compliance costs to go public in the US. In addition, Regulation A+ gives you access to tradable securities and Regulation D, 506 c being implemented now allows international private equity funds and firms to freely advertise capital requirements in the US for growth while also allowing their holdings to more freely raise capital. These are some of the topics we will cover in Texas next week.”
The Texas conference will be held at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Dallas. Conference registrations can be made at http://www.buyoutsconferences.com/events/texas_2012/
