October 22, 2019 12:00 - October 22, 2019 13:30


So your client wants to raise money for their business but either doesn’t want to “go public”, or can’t afford the price tag of a prospectus offering. Where do you begin?  Attend this webinar to hear William (Bill) Nickel provide his thoughts, from a practitioner’s perspective, on how to effectively raise capital using one or more of the exemptions from the prospectus requirement of applicable securities laws.  This webinar will be one-hour in length and will discuss a variety of topics including a high-level overview of Securities Laws as they pertain to raising capital using exempt market securities, a review and discussion of the pros and cons of using certain exemptions from the prospectus requirement, namely: (i) the private issuer exemption; (ii) the accredited investor exemption; (iii) the family, friends and business associates exemption; and (iv) the offering memorandum exemption. Bill will also share practical advice on best practices for using these exemptions, as well as a look at regulatory compliance and recent developments in the area of raising capital using exempt market securities.

This webinar is presented by Bill Nickel, a partner with McDougall Gauley LLP in Saskatoon.
