A private placement is a direct offering of securities to a limited number of sophisticated investors. Investors in privately placed securities include insurance companies, pension funds, mezzanine funds, equity funds, trusts, and accredited individual investors. Securities issued as private placements are exempt form from public registration under the Securities Act of 1933. Certain privately placed securities may be traded among sophisticated investors under Rule 144A of the Securities and Exchange Commission, which substantially increases the liquidity of the affected securities.
