Private Placement Memorandums (PPM)
Whether you are conducting a Regulation D 506(b) or 506(c) offering or other type of private placement, you should use a private placement memorandum or PPM to protect yourself and your business. A PPM is a disclosure document that you provide to potential investors and is a record that you provided all material information about your company. A PPM is especially useful when raising money from outside investors or strangers who you don’t have a personal relationship with.

PPM Risk Factor Tool

If you are raising money from friends and family or sophisticated investors, you may not need to use a full PPM document, but you should still use a set of well tailored risk factors to protect you and your company from liability if anything goes wrong in the future.
Risk factors are like your insurance policy for a securities offering and a well tailored compressive set of risks can protect you and your company from investor lawsuits and SEC actions. By answering a set of yes or no questions and entering some brief information, then generate a set of risk factors that can be tailored by the company for legal protection.
