About the Book
In recent years an increasing number of enterprises have found they may inadvertently have become investment companies, as defined by the landmark Investment Company Act of 1940. The consequences of inadvertently becoming an investment company can be severe. In some instances, all of the company's transactions may be voided. As a result, diverse business concerns are now focused more intently on investment company status issues. And most underwriters now require opinion of counsel that clients are not investment companies before proceeding with IPOs or other financial transactions.
