CUSIP Assistance

Whether you need an ISIN code or other identifiers, many hold the belief that a CUSIP number is a must for North American companies. A CUSIP is a 9 digit code that, like the ISIN, identifies a security. CUSIPs are not used outside of the US and Canada, which is where the ISIN would play a role (the ISIN is used everywhere). If you need to apply for a CUSIP number for stocks or bonds, you may select the box in the application form here.

Bond and Note Offerings can assist with your bond offering. Bond offerings or note offerings, including for convertible bonds or convertible notes, entail a company issuing debt securities. Normally an investor gives a company that issues the debt investment capital and the issuer gives a ‘promise’ to repay the loan with interest. The debt securities normally have an interest payment, either yearly or at maturity (or even many times a year) and a date that the debt terminates, called maturity. An offering memorandum or private placement document is usually written for the bonds and a securities identification number like an ISIN is often assigned to the notes. can assist with the entire bond offering process.

A common form of a debt offering is under Rule 144A. 144A is used for both equity and debt but its popularity appears to be more in the debt sphere than others. An issuer selling securities under Rule 144A can only offer the securities to US citizens who meet a certain networth standard. Foreign investors are not permitted to invest in a 144A. can assist with your 144A private placement memorandum, the 144A ISIN or 144A CUSIP numbers and more. Contact us

Reg S

The flip side of the 144A is the Regulation S, or Reg S. Regulation S offerings and rules state that investment capital can only be obtained via non-US investors. Reg S is considered an ‘offshore’ offering. There are times that a company raises under Rule 144A and Reg S, where they raise capital from both US and on-US investors. This also entails obtaining double the amount of ISIN codes and CUSIP numbers, one each for the 144A and Reg S. assists many companies with their Reg offerings. Contact us
