Reg A+ – 100 Filed, 29 Qualified, intended to raise 1.5B

By Rod Turner ManhattanStreetCapital.com CrowdfundBeat Guest post.

The number of mid-stage companies and fast-paced startups turning their attention to Regulation A+ funding is continuing to gain steam. In April’s update we now have –

 69 companies that have filed Open offerings with the SEC. Another 31 have filed confidentially, an interesting development, and this brings the total up to 100.

 

Open offerings are available for public examination from initial filing on EDGAR with the SEC. The SEC allows confidential filings so that companies can keep their corporate details undisclosed during the filing process. Confidential offerings become open by the time testing the waters or funding starts.

Of the 100 filings, the SEC has Qualified 29, of which 23 are open; 6 are private. The rate of Qualification so far is one per four days.

The average time from filing a Form 1-A to Qualification by the SEC is 71 days.

The aggregate capital companies intend to raise from these offerings is now at $1.5B, including confidential and open filings.

Reg A+’s Top three categories, as of April 2016

1) Real Estate

2) “Purchase a company” transactions

3) Banking (Many of these entrants are using Tier 1 submittals because banks are exempt from state Blue Sky obligations.)

The average planned maximum capital raise is $23M for all offerings filed. 

There are now 12 companies in the informal TestingTheWaters™ – stage.

Seven Regulation A+ offerings are fully underway and accepting investments.

As I’ve noted in prior updates, it is not a requirement of Regulation A+ to list a company on a market such as the OTCQB or QX. Also interesting to note is that the TestingTheWaters™ process allows companies to market themselves informally to assess potential investor interest prior to starting a Form 1-A application with the SEC – a huge advance for founders and investors alike.

A Brief Refresher on Regulation A+

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 raising for mid stage companies and mature startups, and provides investors convenient access to company offerings at their issue price. Shares are liquid post offering. In short: It is a better time for companies to be seeking funding than we have experienced during perhaps any period in U.S. history.

Please note that some estimation is a required in compiling this update.
