The Impact of the JOBS Act on Technology Companies


TechAmerica and Grant Thornton LLP are pleased to present the sixth webcast in our CFO Insights series. This webcast focuses on the impact of the JOBS Act on technology companies.

Date: Wednesday, July 11, 2012
Time: 12-1pm Eastern Time
Recommended CPE credits: 1.0

On April 5, President Obama signed the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act into law. This is a first step, among other solutions, to encourage small businesses to access U.S. capital markets, spur business innovation, generate new jobs and revitalize the U.S. economy. While some provisions of the JOBS Act take effect immediately, others won’t be implemented until new rules are written by the SEC – a process that should extend into next year.

Join Grant Thornton and TechAmerica as they walk you through how the JOBS Act will impact technology companies.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the JOBS Act provisions and SEC rules
  • Understand how the JOBS Act will impact capital raising for technology companies
  • Recognize how the JOBS Act will alter Wall Street “best practices” for technology IPOs

Featured presenters:

  • David Weild, Head of Capital Markets at Grant Thornton LLP and Former Vice Chairman of NASDAQ
  • Marie Lee, Vice President and Counsel, Tax Policy, TechAmerica
