The Public Offering And A Quest For Alternatives, Bart A. Brown, Jr., Clifford A. Roe, Jr., Scott B. Crooks

Vanderbilt Law Review

The year 1969 has seen a continuation of the strong new issues market that has commanded a significant portion of the attention of the investing public over the past few years. As a result, more and more closely held companies are seeking to raise funds through public offerings of their stock and thus share in the successes of this strong market. While the market conditions have been most encouraging,there have been other developments that have made the managements of some closely held companies reconsider the relative advantages and disadvantages of going public. Recent court decisions have strictly defined the ...


Taxation Of Preferred Stock In Corporate Reorganizations, Bruce E. Gagnon Dec 1969

Taxation Of Preferred Stock In Corporate Reorganizations, Bruce E. Gagnon

Vanderbilt Law Review

Among the sections added to the revised version of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 was section 306, designed to close a gaping loophole which might have permitted many taxpayers to withdraw earnings and profits from a corporation through the distribution and sale of preferred stock and to receive capital gains treatment at the shareholder level rather than the dividend treatment ordinarily applicable to such distributions. In this article, Professor Gagnon argues that, as applied to corporate reorganizations, section 306 falls far from its mark. After discussing the purpose and operation of section 306 and related sections, the author suggests ...

Insider Liability For Short-Swing Profits Pursuant To Mergers And Related Transactions, James P. Hemmer Oct 1969

Insider Liability For Short-Swing Profits Pursuant To Mergers And Related Transactions, James P. Hemmer

Vanderbilt Law Review

This article considers the problems presented by the application of section 16(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 to corporate merger transactions. Mr. Hemmer argues that the"matching across" proposal, which has been suggested by some commentators, should not be applied to the merger situation. Instead, the author advocates that the "possibility of abuse" test, which the courts have applied to conversion transactions, should also. be applicable to the corporate merger. Mr. Hemmer feels this approach will prevent the abuses for which section 16(b) was enacted and, at the same time, provide the courts with a flexible ...

How Big A House Of Cards-Private Actions And Insiders Under Rule 10b-5, Steven E. Briggs, Donald Bolles May 1969

How Big A House Of Cards-Private Actions And Insiders Under Rule 10b-5, Steven E. Briggs, Donald Bolles

San Diego Law Review

Today, the federal court interpretation of Rule 10b-5, promulgated by the SEC (under the authority of a federal statute, section 10b of the Securities Exchange Act) have become the cornerstone of a federal common law of corporations. Recently there has been expansive use of the rule to afford a private civil remedy for a "defrauded" buyer or seller of securities. The right to sue for either damages or rescission was not explicitly given by the statute or the rule, rather it has been implied by the courts. The dimensions of this new judicially crated right of action are still developing ...

Financial Statement Insurance: A New Approach To Ivestor Protection, Stephen Z. Surridge Apr 1969

Financial Statement Insurance: A New Approach To Ivestor Protection, Stephen Z. Surridge

University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform

The accounting profession rapidly is moving toward a crisis in liability. Members of the investing public are suing accountants with mounting frequency and success. This article will analyze briefly the origin and present dimensions of the crisis, and then propose a plan for replacing court-imposed liability with insured liability through the offering of financial statement insurance. The essentials of the plan can be simply stated. Insurance would be offered by accountants to investors on a voluntary basis in conjunction with purchases and sales of corporate stock and securities. Individual investors would be able to purchase from the auditors of a ...

The Underwriter's Duty Of "Due Diligence" Under Section 11 Of The Securities Act: Reflections On Barchris, Theodore W. Lenz Mar 1969

The Underwriter's Duty Of "Due Diligence" Under Section 11 Of The Securities Act: Reflections On Barchris, Theodore W. Lenz

Vanderbilt Law Review

The Securities Act of 1933 seeks to protect the investing public by putting into the hands of the potential securities purchaser information upon which he can base an enlightened investing choice. The participants in a public distribution of securities--including the underwriters are required to collect, accurately and completely in a registration statement and an accompanying prospectus, the relevant facts about the company issuing the securities. Failure to do so will render the participants liable under section 11 of the Act. The Act then imposes a duty of care on the underwriter and enforces that duty by the threat of civil ...


Control Of Corporate Indemnification:A Proposed Statute, James H. Cheek, Iii Mar 1969

Control Of Corporate Indemnification:A Proposed Statute, James H. Cheek, Iii

Vanderbilt Law Review

The recent unprecedented increase in the number of suits filed against corporate executives under the Federal antitrust and securities laws has again focused attention on the risks of executive liability " and the corresponding problem of attracting top men as corporate directors. Faced with this dilemma, corporations have drafted bylaws providing for the maximum identification allowed under applicable state law. The state legislatures, on the other hand, have attempted to prevent misuse of the power to indemnify, while at the same time trying to insure adequate protection for those who serve as directors. Mr. Cheek argues that the legislatures have Jailed ...

Security Transfers By Secured Parties, David G. Epstein Jan 1969

Security Transfers By Secured Parties, David G. Epstein

Law Faculty Publications

While no Uniform Commercial Code section specifically so provides, the Code clearly contemplates transfer by secured parties of their interest arising under security agreements, and these transfers commonly occur. Yet the legal ramifications of such transfers are to a large extent unknown because of the silence of the Code and the absence of both reported decisions and secondary authorities. This article will examine one type of transfer by secured parties-transfers by secured parties to secure payment of an indebtedness.


Broker-Dealer Disclosure Of Corporate Inside Information, James K. Weeks, Jeffrey V. Mccormick Jan 1969

Broker-Dealer Disclosure Of Corporate Inside Information, James K. Weeks, Jeffrey V. Mccormick

Cleveland State Law Review

The recent decisions in the field of securities transactions do not significantly change the legal standards, but they do create an increased awareness of the problems and the limits imposed upon the financial community. It is well established now that a broker's duties to the investing public take precedence over any conflicting duties to his customers or advisees to whom he only owes a duty not to defraud them or profit at their expense. The broker further has a duty to prevent his clients from profiting at the expense of the uninformed public.

Management's Liability For Defamation In Proxy Statements, Morton L. Berg

Cleveland State Law Review

The Securities Exchange Act of 1934 specifically provides for a dual system of regulation over securities and persons by both state securities commissions and the SEC, provided that the state authority does not conflict with the Exchange Act or consequent rules and regulations. However, there is no direction given in the Act or its rules as to whether federal pre-emption will be applied when a Commission rule attempts to abrogate the state's common law of defamation.
