Greg Kahn and Eliza Sporn Fromberg Discuss "Private Equity Fund Managers' Dilemma" in VC Experts

Publisher: VC Experts

Corporate and Business Law attorneys Greg Kahn and Eliza Sporn Fromberg authored an article titled "The Private Equity Fund Managers' Dilemma: Register as Broker-Dealers or (Potentially) Cease Collecting Fees for 'Investment Banking Activities'?" for the May 23 edition of VC Experts. They discuss comments by the chief counsel of the SEC's Division of Trading and Markets, which suggest "that private fund managers' receipt of transaction fees in connection with the purchase, sale or recapitalization of a portfolio company, if accompanied by a securities issuance, may trigger broker-dealer status questions." Greg and Eliza write that the effect could be greatest for "private equity funds, particularly small funds, and independent sponsors" and urge early review of the issues.
