With the effectiveness of Regulation Crowdfunding in May 2016 and amended Securities Act Rule 147 and new Securities Act Rule 147A in April 2017, there has been increasing interest in intrastate crowdfunded offerings. The SEC also recently issued C&DIs on new Rule 147A in April 2017 that clarified that (1) offers and sales made in reliance on new Rule 147A will not be integrated with prior offers and sales of securities, including offers and sales made in reliance on amended Securities Act Rule 147, and (2) issuers must still comply with all applicable state securities law requirements. However, state crowdfunding regulations are not all identical and many have significant differences.
