The SEC released informal guidance to foreign private issuers, describing how to comply with U.S. securities laws and SEC regs.
It actually provides a decent overview of the securities laws for any issuer along with a discussion of what it takes to qualify as a foreign private issuer.
It also provides a decent discussion of a couple of topics that generally causes confusion:
- Requirement of registration vs. exemptions from registration
- Resales of restricted securities.
It is worth checking out. See it here.
