Small businesses seem to always need money, but sometimes getting a business loan just isn’t possible. An alternative might be to use private placements, a process for selling securities without going public or registering the sale. Your small business can use this type of funding under special Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regulations.

Benefits of Private Placements
For companies that want to raise capital, private placements offer an superb opportunity. However, private placements are unsuitable for public offering or venture capital. PPMs help companies to quickly raise capital more quickly and much less expensively than a traditional IPO. In fact, many of today’s high growth companies are opting for private placement offerings rather than the public counterpart. In addition, companies are not required to take the burden of complying with disclosure obligations that are essential when undertaking a public offering.
It is important that private companies that are thinking in terms of private placements to assess and determine as to whether they have certain crucial elements. The key positions of the company should be filled up with high caliber managers and the company should foresee strong growth with a clear strategy for exit in the future.
