Financial Statement Requirements in US Securities Offerings: What Non-US Issuers Need to Know - 2021 Edition

Latham & Watkins LLP

The most frequently asked question at all-hands meetings for a securities offering is “What financial statements will be needed?” The question seems simple enough. But the answer is rarely straightforward.

This User’s Guide is designed to provide a roadmap to help navigate the financial statement requirements of the US federal securities laws. We focus principally on the requirements for new registration statements in public offerings by “foreign private issuers” (a term that covers most non-US issuers other than foreign governments), including initial public offerings by emerging growth companies (EGCs) under the JOBS Act. We also summarize briefly the practices in the Rule 144A market.

To make the discussion below easier to follow, we have provided examples using actual dates. These dates are based on a company with a December 31 fiscal year end.

Please see full Publication below for more information.
