Foreign banks are increasingly seeking to diversify their financing opportunities. With careful planning, banks can access U.S. investors without subjecting themselves to the securities registration requirements applicable to public offerings and to ongoing disclosure and governance requirements applicable to U.S. reporting companies. Topics include  issuances exempt from registration under Rule 144A; issuances that rely on exception from registration provided by the Securities Act Section 3(a)(2) for securities offered or guaranteed by banks; setting up a Rule 144A or bank note program for straight debt; and more.
