Private placement involves raising capital by selling to a smaller number of select investors. These investors often include “accredited investors” as defined in Regulation D. In contrast, a public issue involves making securities available in an open market to a variety of investors.
Federal and state securities laws regulate nonpublic offerings of securities. However, due to the investors involved in private placement, these laws include exemptions from registration allowing companies to raise funds without having to go through a lengthy and expensive registration process.
