                corporation is a qualified small business, and
                    ``(B) except as provided in subsection (e), such 
                stock is acquired--
                            ``(i) in exchange for money or other 
                        property, or
                            ``(ii) as compensation for services 
                        provided to such corporation (other than 
                        services performed as an underwriter of such 
                        stock), and
            ``(2) which, at the time of sale or exchange giving rise to 
        gain to be excluded under subsection (a), is publicly traded on 
        any established domestic national or regional stock exchange or 
        stock market, the Over the Counter Bulletin Board, or the

                    ``(A) the amount equal to--
                            ``(i) the closing price of a share of stock 
                        in the corporation as of the end of the 
                        reporting period ending immediately before such 
                        date of acquisition, multiplied by
                            ``(ii) the number of outstanding shares of 
                        such stock in the corporation as of the end of 
                        such period, or
                    ``(B) in the case that subparagraph (A) does not 
                apply, determined (by taking into account all facts and 
                circumstances) on the basis of the most recent amounts 
                paid for each class of stock in the corporation 
                outstanding on the date of the acquisition of the 1203 
                stock.

        term `reporting period' means the period for which the most 
        recent annual or quarterly report is required to be filed with 
        the Securities and Exchange Commission under section 13(a)(2)

        78o(d)) or periodic information required under section 15(d) of 
        such Act (15 U.S.C. 78o(d)), as the case may be.

        similar to the rules of subsections (f), (g), (h), (i), (j), 
        and (k) of section 1202 shall apply, except that subsection 
        (j)(1)(A) of section 1202 shall be applied by substituting `1 
        year' for `5 years'.
            ``(2) Qualified small business stock.--Sales and exchanges
