A certain DPP offering is being conducted on a mini-max basis. The deadline for avoiding cancellation of the offering is coming up soon. Which of the following is an acceptable way for a dealer to bring the number of units sold up to the minimum before the deadline?

A ) Instruct purchasers to send their funds directly to the issuer, since this will be quicker than going through the escrow agent
B ) Count units that have been ordered but not yet paid for toward the minimum
C ) Ask the sponsor to purchase units
D ) Urge purchasers who have not yet paid for their orders to do so

See Answer

Answer: The Best Answer is D

In a DPP offering, the issuer, sponsor, or dealer may not:
•   Instruct investors to send their funds directly to the issuer
•   Consider the minimum sales threshold to have been met based on sales that have not yet been paid for in full
•   Purchase units to bring the offering’s sales up to the minimum threshold, have any of its employees or affiliates do so, or knowingly solicit purchases from investors who do not intend to pay—such sales are known as non–bona fide sales
•   Take out a loan with the intention of using the proceeds for non–bona fide sales
