William K. Sjostrom Jr. has posted Direct Private Placements on SSRN with the following abstract:
A direct private placement, or DPP, is a private securities offering to investors by a company without the aid of a placement agent. In other words, it is an offering marketed and sold directly to investors by company personnel. The paper examines two impediments to a DPP: (1) a company’s lack of relationships with accredited investors, and (2) company personnel lack of federal broker and state agent registrations.
