From the September 2008 Small Business Securities Newsletter, published by the Securities Practice Group to provide timely and useful information to CEOs, CFOs, and General Counsel.

As reported in previous editions of this newsletter, the SEC approved amendments to Regulation D, which, among other things, mandate electronic filing of SEC Form D. Effective September 15, 2008, Form D may be filed in paper format or electronically. The SEC has set up a link on its website to permit electronic filings and published a compliance guide regarding accessing the Edgar System. Effective March 16, 2009, all Form D filings will be required to be filed electronically.
