Volume 3, Issue 2

Denis T. Rice, Howard Rice Nemerovski Canady Falk & Rabkin P.C.

Since 1999, the Internet-based Dutch auction system has been an available option for companies seeking to establish an initial public offering. In this article, Denis T.

The author also discusses SEC rules and interpretations that are particularly applicable to Internet IPOs using the Dutch auction system.
