Join Us On My New Blog!

All: as of May 1, 2013, I am now blogging exclusively at http://www.davidfeldmanblog.com. In addition to continuing my coverage of alternatives to traditional IPOs, including reverse mergers, we have expanded the commentary to include the economy, the capital markets, entrepreneurship, the legal industry, crowdfunding, the SEC, Congress and the regulatory environment. The enhanced coverage is ...

We’re Back! All Clean! And Spiffy New Look!

Thanks everyone for your patience as we cleared up a malware problem that hit this humble blog. Everything is fixed and we have an “all clear” from Google! We took the opportunity to update the look of the site a little, hope you like it! We are also just weeks away from launching a new ...

Apologies folks!!! Back soon…..

Like major banks, Facebook and news media, it appears our wonderful blog has been hit with some malware. Hopefully it’s not some radical anti-reverse merger people! Seriously, it looks like just your garden variety virus has hit some of my prior posts. We may reset the blog to pre-January 1, which would get rid of ...

Malware Warning: Only on a Link

I apologize as some of you are getting warnings that there is malware on this site. We have not found the specific cause, but we know it is connected to a hyper-link somewhere on the site. Therefore, it is totally safe to come here and read blog entries. I would not, however, click on any ...

#Sandy and Her Aftermath

To all those who inquired, thank you. My family and I are safe following Hurricane Sandy’s pounding of New York and New Jersey. We lost power through the week in our Long Island home, but miraculously had it restored last night just before the cold arrived. Also we thankfully had no damage. Our office in ...

Thoughts as We Approach #September11

  I cannot believe it is nearly 11 years since the terrorist attacks in the US on September 11, 2001. I have redacted below an email I send each year to current and former colleagues, some of whom were working with me that day, so that we will never forget what happened that day and in ...

The (Good?) Old Days- Part V: Political Correctness

One of those emails that goes around says, “If you remember this stuff you were raised in the 1930s to the 1970s..” One that always sticks out to me: “Little league had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn’t had to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!” I’m all for, as an example, ...

Entrepreneur’s Tip of the Week: Get Your Financing Right

Most growing businesses need to raise outside capital to fuel that growth. Sometimes it comes from friends and family, sometimes angel or venture capital investors, other times from private equity investors or banks. Public companies seek public offerings or private investments in public equity (PIPEs). Some are lucky enough to “bootstrap” existing cash flow to ...

The (Good?) Old Days – Part IV – Cable News

While not as dramatic a change as the PDA, the Internet and computer technology, the advent of 24-hour cable TV news stations ushered in significant changes in so much in our society. CNN launched in 1980 and only available on cable. Why does that matter? Because in 1980 many people did not have cable TV, ...

The (Good?) Old Days – Part III: Internet and Computer Technology

Very possibly the most significant development of the last century, possibly forever, is the advent of the Internet, email and computer technology. They have dramatically changed how just about all business is done for sure. Before all this, back when I started practicing law at a big firm, getting a distribution of documents out was quite ...
