Regulation D Exempt Offerings:

The Securities Act of 1933, as amended, is the federal law governing the issuance of securities in the United States.  In general, the law requires each sale of a security to be registered with the SEC.  However, the law allows the SEC to establish exemptions from registration when it determines that the public can be protected by compliance with the rules of the exemption, and without the rigorous procedure of a registration.  A major exemption from registration is set forth in Regulation D issued by the SEC.  Regulation D is composed of Rules 501-506.  The Section references below refer to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
