We are extremely gratified by today’s bipartisan passage (73-26) of the JOBS Act and commend the U.S. Senate for its leadership – particularly Senators Schumer, Toomey, Crapo and Warner -- in crafting this legislation and expeditiously moving it forward. The JOBS Act will address a multitude of challenges currently faced by America’s emerging growth companies that are seeking capital to grow, innovate and hire employees. We are optimistic that the House will agree to send the JOBS Act to the President to sign in short order as this will be a significant victory for entrepreneurial companies and the U.S. economy.
