By Rod Turner founder and CEO of Manhattan Street Capital, Crowdfund Beat Guest Editor,

Regulation A+ 61 companies Filed with the SEC, 12 Qualified by the SEC, average 23 million goal.

In June 2015 Title IV of the JOBS Act opened the door for main street (non accredited) investors worldwide to invest in private companies having headquarters in the USA or Canada. Regulation A+ funding offers cost effective capital rasing for mid stage companies and mature startups, and provides investors convenient access to company offerings at their issue price. Latest numbers below:

61 companies have applied to the SEC to be Qualified for a Reg A+ offering, up from 45 one month ago – one new application every two days. The number of service providers offering legal services and audits focused on Reg A+ companies has increased, bringing costs down.

Regulation-A-Plus

The aggregate capital intended to be raised from these offerings is $1.3 Billion, up from $1 Billion a month ago.

The average planned maximum capital raise is $23 million per offering.

12 Regulation A+ Form 1-A filings have been Qualified by the SEC.

Elio Motors listed on the OTCQX on Feb 24th, ticker is ELIO. This stock Issued at $12 per share, trading volume approximately $100k/day, recent trading range in the mid $30’s.
