Venture Capital Alert: Revisions to Form D and Mandatory Electronic Filing Requirements for Form D for all Issuers


Effective March 16, 2009, all issuers of securities, including those without a class of securities registered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, will be required to make Form D filings electronically through the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC or the Commission) Electronic Data Gathering Analysis and Retrieval (EDGAR) filing system, making such forms accessible from any computer with Internet access. In addition, the SEC has made a number of changes to Form D itself and clarified the circumstances under which amendments to Form D will be required.1 State securities filings (also known as “blue sky” filings) are presently not required to be made electronically and will continue to be required in paper format (or any other format required by state regulators) for the foreseeable near term.2
