In order for a Buyer or Investor to acquire §1202 status, the original sale had to be a stock sale & 5 years must pass from the date of that stock purchase to become QSBS §1202 eligible.
For example, A private equity firm bought/invested in a company for $20 million, and over the next 6 years, the value of their shares increase in that company to $220 million. Using §1202, they would pay NO taxes on a sale. Taxes would only begin to be calculated after the first $220 million of sales proceeds.
