Micro Offering Safe Harbor Act

(Sec. 2) This bill amends the Securities Act of 1933 to exempt certain micro-offerings from: (1) state regulation of securities offerings, and (2) federal prohibitions related to interstate solicitation.

The exempted micro-offerings must meet all of the following requirements:

  • the purchaser has a substantive pre-existing relationship with the issuer,
  • during the 12-month period preceding the transaction there are no more than 35 purchasers relying on the exemption, and
  • the amount of all securities sold by the issuer (including any amount sold in reliance upon the exemption) during the 12-month period preceding the transaction does not exceed $500,000.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.
