2000 Investor Limit
Definition of '2000 Investor Limit'
The 2000 Investor Limit applies to all Regulation D offerings, including private placements, exempt offerings, and Regulation A offerings. The limit is based on the number of investors who have committed to invest in the offering, not the number of investors who have actually invested.
There are a few exceptions to the 2000 Investor Limit. For example, the limit does not apply to offerings that are made to accredited investors. Accredited investors are individuals who have a net worth of at least $1 million, or who have earned at least $200,000 in each of the two most recent years and have a reasonable expectation of earning the same amount in the current year.
The 2000 Investor Limit can be a significant obstacle for companies that want to raise capital from a large number of investors. However, there are a number of ways to get around the limit. For example, a company can make multiple offerings, each of which is limited to 2,000 investors. Alternatively, a company can structure its offering as a private placement, which is exempt from the 2000 Investor Limit.
The 2000 Investor Limit is an important rule that helps to protect investors from fraud. However, the limit can also be a barrier to capital formation for companies that want to raise capital from a large number of investors.
