Regulation D

Definition:

This rule lets companies sell to private investors rather than to the general public.

Regulation D offerings don't need to be registered with the SEC, but they do need to toe the line in other ways. The offering can be made to any number of accredited investors, for example, but to only up to 35 unaccredited investors. Rule 144 lockup provisions may also apply to this type of offering.
