REGULATION D, in the USA, is a regulation under the Securities Act of 1933 which exempts limited offers and sales of securities from registration if the offering satisfies certain requirements as to the number and nature of investors and the value of the offering. Advertising and resale are restricted. In general, Rule 504 of Reg D is used for offerings of $1 million or less; Rule 505 of Reg D is used for offerings of $5 million or less, with no more than 35 purchasers who are not Accredited Investors; and Rule 506 of Reg D is used for offerings over $5 million, with no more than 35 purchasers who are not Accredited Investors, but who must be either sophisticated or represented by a Purchaser Representative.
PUT OPTION is the right but not the obligation to sell an underlying at a particular price (strike price) on or before the expiration date of the contract. Alternatively, a short forward position with an upside insurance policy.
UP-FRONT PAYMENT is anything of value, usually money, delivered at the time a contract is signed, e.g. down payment, licensing fees, or closing costs.
