On January 31, 2014, the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Division of Trading and Markets (the “Division”) issued a no action letter (the “No Action Letter”) providing relief to M&A Brokers (as defined below), in certain stated circumstances, engaged in the purchase or sale of privately-held companies from compliance with the registration requirements of Section 15(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”). By reason of the no action relief, M&A Brokers may be entitled to receive transaction-based compensation without having to register as a broker-dealer under Section 15(a) of the Exchange Act. In issuing the No Action Letter, the SEC set a number of conditions to be followed. Please see the full post for more information including the full list of conditions.
