My company is outside the USA, can I use Reg A+?

Can a company that is based outside the USA and Canada use Regulation A+ ?

Yes, with two caveats:

1) You must establish the legal headquarters for your company in the USA or Canada.

2) The use of proceeds from the transaction must primarily benefit the US or Canada.

For example;

a) If your non-US company opens a new division in the USA which raises capital to expand your business into the US market, this is acceptable.

b) If you raise capital to buy a US based company and expand it, this is fine.

c) If you have a company based in the UK and you raise capital to expand in the UK or to buy a French company, these are not acceptable to the SEC.
