ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the changes to the rules for U.S. securities. The reforms were adopted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in July 2005. It was aimed to increase the speed with which issuers are able to access the capital markets. The largest companies are substantially benefited under the new rule. These companies, dubbed as "well-known seasoned issuers,"or WKSIs, can place public offering before filing registration statements. New rules allow underwriters and issuers to communicate more freely with investors.
