Regulation A+ & Crowdfunding
Everyone has heard of the success stories with Kickstarter, Indegogo and other crowdfunding sites over the last several years. For the people that have been keeping up and staying in the loop with these various new sites, its no doubt that you are witnessing changing times on how companies get funded. However, although successes of Kickstarter and others in the marketplace have changed traditional fundraising, it still left a gap in the capital markets for Equity Raises in startups and emerging growth companies to participate in this phenomenom.
Recently The Securities and Exchange Commission adopted final rules to facilitate smaller companies’ access to capital. The new rules provide investors with more investment choices. The new rules update and expanded Regulation A, an existing exemption from registration for smaller issuers of securities. The rules are mandated by Title IV of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act. The updated exemption will enable smaller companies to offer and sell up to $50 million of securities in a 12-month period, subject to eligibility, disclosure and reporting requirements.
This is going to be and has already started to become a game changer in the how capital is raised especially when you also consider that over 95% of business plans that are received by accredited investors and VCs are rejected. It's no surprise that entrepreneurs have been looking elsewhere for funding and having the ability to raise capital via crowding funding methods along with a Regulation A+ Offering is going to change the course for many. It also provides an exit strategy for investors which is always a common question asked by prospective investors.
