SEC 504 Public Stock Offerings
Taking a company public is sometimes regarded as a once-in-a-life-time experience. Under a SEC 504 Public Offering, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) exempts companies from most of the commission's registration and reporting rules that govern larger stock sales. They are fairly simple to carry out and don't require a large legal investment. For more information, read the SEC's Regulation D, the governing regulation, read SEC staff interpretation of Regulation D, or call the SEC at (202) 942-4046.
Purchasing a franchise frequently enables an entrepreneur (franchisee) to start a business using preferential financing from the franchiser. The franchiser lends money to highly qualified franchisees, allowing them to make modest to no debt service for a specified number of years. During that time, the franchisee can focus on growing the business.
Other franchisers guarantee traditional bank loans on behalf of the franchisee.
