This CLE webinar will examine the mechanics of traditional private investments in public equity (PIPEs) as well as registered direct offerings. The panel will discuss short-term advantages and follow-up obligations for issuers, key terms, and issues for investors to consider when engaging in these transactions. PIPEs and related transactions are gaining in popularity in the current market. They offer quick execution and access to capital because they are either exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933 or done as a "registered direct" transaction using an existing shelf registration. Given the need for quick access for capital and the difficulties of public reporting during the COVID-19 pandemic, PIPEs have become particularly attractive.
