The JOBS Act: Initiatives and Challenges of the New Legislation
Panel 1 - The IPO ON-Ramp
Description: The JOBS Act was designed to incentivize IPO filings as a response to the declining number of small companies that were choosing to go public. At the same time, the Act creates a new category of issuer, the “emerging growth company,” that allows firms an additional 5 years to scale up to full public company status. The most important question our panelists will be faced with is whether the IPO on-ramp is really going to change the trend against IPO filings, and what caused the decline in the first place.
