What is the difference between a 144A and Reg S Offering? This is a common question that we are often receives. We can assist with your Reg S and 144A offerings.
Regulation S – often referred to as ‘Reg S’, are bonds or stocks that may not be offered,sold or delivered within the U.S.. Additionally, they may not be on behalf or for the account or benefit of U.S. citizens, unless pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to the registration requirements of the Securities Act. Reg S has many restrictions, as can be seen, for United States residents.
Additionally before, bonds sold under Regulation S (Reg S), can only be offered in the U.S. to qualified institutional buyers (QIBs) in reliance on Rule 144A. QIBs are in fact one of the only groups permitted to invest in Reg S offerings.
144A – Rule 144A, often referred to as a 144A offering, is an SEC rule issued in 1990 that modified a two-year holding period requirement on privately placed securities by permitting QIBs to trade these positions among themselves. Prior to this the holding period for such private stock was different. A 144A offering is a U.S. based offering, and typically is considered an alternative to the timely and costly initial public offering.
Regulation S and 144A Bonds or stocks are generally assigned two separate sets of ISIN and CUSIP securities identification codes. Commonly, Reg S bonds obtain an ISIN number (“International Securities Identification Number”) and what is called a “common code” and are generally accepted for clearance through Euro firms like Clearstream that clear and settle. ON the other hand, 144A bonds get a CUSIP number and an “ISIN” code and are generally applied to, and accepted by DTC for clearing.
Note that after the initial period both series are normally merged mainly in an effort to increase the liquidity of such bonds.
