Private Placement Memorandum

A document explaining a new offering of securities for private placement. Private placement involves selling securities without registering with the SEC. A private placement memorandum must then explain exactly why the offering complies with SEC Regulation D exempting certain companies from registration; this is done to protect both the issuer and the investors. According to Regulation D, a PPM must contain a complete description of the security and the terms of the sales. It must also include applicable information about the issuer's financial situation and applicable risk factors. Because securities for general issue must be registered under Regulation D, a PPM is not allowed to contain a general offer for investment.
