Tomorrow night at a panel here at Duane Morris, we will hit official pre-launch on my latest book, Regulation A+ and Other Alternatives to a Traditional IPO (John Wiley & Sons). Here’s info from Amazon about this guide to the new streamlined IPO process through Reg A+:
From the Inside Flap
From David Feldman (the “Godfather” of Regulation A+) comes the authoritative resource for investors and entrepreneurs who want a clear understanding of the new SEC rules under the JOBS Act of 2012. Regulation A+ and Other Alternatives to a Traditional IPO offers an in-depth examination of the complex JOBS Act, citing both the benefits and challenges. Following the guidelines outlined in this essential guide, small businesses can determine how best to go public and raise much-needed capital. While Feldman spotlights Reg A+ as the leading alternative to a traditional IPO, he also offers an update on and introduction to reverse mergers, self-filings and other IPO alternatives.
Before Regulation A+ was enacted, small cap companies with a desire to enter the public marketplace had been shut out of the traditional IPO process. Regulation A+ offers these businesses an opportunity to go public by raising capital while keeping offering and compliance costs at a manageable rate. Throughout the book, the author presents a concise and reliable introduction to the new Reg A+ rules that offer a more flexible, streamlined, and cost-effective approach for accessing up to $50 million in capital. Using Regulation A+ and Other Alternatives to a Traditional IPO as a roadmap can help investors join others who have found success using this attractive method to raise money and take their companies to the next level.
Written in Feldman’s engaging style and filled with logical, plain English explanations, a smart strategy, and illustrative examples, Regulation A+ and Other Alternatives to a Traditional IPO is the go-to reference for anyone who wants to master the nuances of Regulation A+’s dynamic new approach and explore other available funding options.

“In all the writing about Regulation A, what we lack is context. Why did we need the revisions to this ancient regulation? What did ‘Regulation A+’ replace? What are the alternatives? This is the book that answers those questions and explains Regulation A’s place in our ever-more-complex regulatory regime, written by someone with deep understanding of that context.”
—SARA HANKS, CEO/Founder, CrowdCheck, Inc. and Co-Chair of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Advisory Committee on Small and Emerging Companies
