On April 16, 2012, the SEC Division of Corporation Finance issued additional Frequently Asked Questions to provide guidance on the implementation and application of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (the "JOBS Act"), based on its current understanding of the JOBS Act and in light of its existing rules, regulations and procedures. These FAQs address questions of general applicability under Title I of the JOBS Act. Title I provides scaled disclosure provisions for emerging growth companies, including, among other things, two years of audited financial statements in the Securities Act of 1933 registration statement for an initial public offering of common equity securities, the smaller reporting company version of Item 402 of Regulation S-K, and no requirement for Sarbanes-Oxley Act Section 404(b) auditor attestations of internal control over financial reporting. Title I also enables emerging growth companies to use test-the-waters communications with Qualified Institutional Buyers or "QIBs" and institutional accredited investors and liberalizes the use of research reports on emerging growth companies.
