Private Placement Advisors LLC 





advising on exempt offerings to find investors.  

Equity Offerings and Debt Offerings

Equity Offerings and Debt Offerings are two common types of securities 

that companies offer via a Regulation D

Equity Offerings


Equity securities consist of shares for a corporation or membership units for an LLC. They represent a portion of the ownership interest in the company. Stockholders are entitled to vote on company matters and must receive all key information about the company, including financial statements, on a regular basis.

Debt Offerings


Debt securities usually consist of notes representing debt obligations of the company, with a specified interest rate, maturity date, and repayment amount. A company should only offer debt securities if it can demonstrate that it has the ability to repay the debt.

Since 2011 Private Placement Advisors LLC has been an industry leader in providing Regulation D documentation and advisory services. We help select the best transaction structure. We draft private placement memorandum and other offering documentation. We assist with SEC filings and state filings. We give clients access to our database of FINRA broker-dealers. We create custom 506(c) investor portals.
