Frequently asked questions

What is Rule 506(c)?

Rule 506(c) is a provision under Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933 that permits issuers to broadly solicit and generally advertise an offering, provided that all purchasers in the offering are accredited investors and the issuer takes reasonable steps to verify their accredited status.

Who can invest in a Rule 506(c) offering?

Only accredited investors, as defined by the SEC, can invest in a Rule 506(c) offering. This includes individuals with a net worth exceeding $1 million (excluding the value of their primary residence) or an annual income exceeding $200,000 ($300,000 for joint income) for the last two years.

How does Rule 506(c) differ from Rule 506(b)?

The main difference is that Rule 506(c) allows for general solicitation and advertising of the offering, whereas Rule 506(b) does not. However, 506(b) allows for up to 35 non-accredited, sophisticated investors to participate, which 506(c) does not.

Is there a limit on the amount that can be raised under Rule 506(c)?

No, there is no cap on the amount of money that can be raised under Rule 506(c).

How does Rule 506(c) affect state securities laws?

While Rule 506(c) offerings are exempt from state registration requirements, states still have the authority to require notice filings and collect state fees.

an Rule 506(c) offerings be advertised publicly?

Yes, one of the key features of Rule 506(c) is that it allows issuers to use general solicitation and advertising to market their securities, which is not permitted under other Regulation D exemptions.

Are there any ongoing reporting requirements?

Unlike public companies, there are no ongoing reporting requirements with the SEC specifically for the offering. However, issuers must comply with any applicable federal securities laws and state notice filing requirements.

What are the requirements for verifying accredited investor status under Rule 506(c)?

Issuers must take reasonable steps to verify that all investors are accredited. This can include reviewing tax returns, W-2s, bank statements, credit reports, or other financial documents that demonstrate an investor’s income or net worth. Alternatively, reliance on a third party, like a broker-dealer, attorney, or CPA, who confirms the investor’s accredited status can also be considered reasonable.
