Interact with FactRight’s Reg A+ Database

by Brandon Raatikka According to FactRight’s tracking, the SEC qualified 21 Reg A+ Tier 2 offerings in the second quarter of 2017, maintaining a brisk pace by the standards of Reg A+’s relatively short history. Approximately 45% of the 96 Tier 2 offerings qualified since late 2015 (not later withdrawn or used for merger purposes) have been qualified in just the first half of this year.   Three issuers made headlines in June 2017, when each listed common equity (that had been previously issued under Regulation A offerings) on a national securities exchange: Myomo, Inc. (NYSE: MYO), Adomani, Inc. (Nasdaq: ADOM), and ShiftPixy, Inc. (Nasdaq: PIXY). In the wake…

2017 State of Crowdfunding

White Paper Report: Expanding into Cannabis-Related Investing

White Paper Report:  Expanding into Cannabis-Related Investing

Crowdfund Beat Media, VIA Folio, the private securities division of Folio Investments Inc., has decided to support capital formation for certain businesses engaged in the cannabis sector. We reached this decision because we believe it will advance our goal of democratizing the private securities sector and will help fund companies that cannot tap traditional venture capital. We began exploring this idea after broker-dealers contacted us about our willingness to support the fundraising efforts of certain cannabis-related businesses. Prior to reaching a decision, we studied and carefully considered the complex legal landscape and public policy issues surrounding the growing legalization movement for cannabis. Any use of…

The Search for Yield, Part 2: Refinancing Commercial Real Estate

By  Kyle Engelken, WealthForge Crowdfund  Beat Guestpost, Ten years ago, you could not open your daily financial periodical without being bombarded with articles about the subprime loan crisis. However, quietly in the background, commercial mortgage backed securities (CMBS) were being issued at a record pace with loan to value ratios over 100 percent. In 2005, approximately $169 billion of CMBS loans were issued. Two years later, this number reached $230 billion. Today, analysts are predicting just $50 billion in CMBS issuance for 2016—far less than the nearly $90 billion in loans due for refinancing this year and over $100 billion in 2017.1 Many of the commercial loans…

The Securities and Exchange Commission’s (“SEC”) amendments to Regulation A went into effect on June 19, 2015. Those amendments provided companies not just with greater access to capital through the ability to raise up to $50 million, but also a greater ability to communicate with investors through novel communication rules previously unavailable to issuers in a public offering of securities. Whereas previously, communications for public offerings were limited to the information contained in an offering prospectus or offering circular, the amendments to Regulation A instead allow issuers to freely communicate before any filing or qualification with…

Crowdfunding Curriculum

INTRODUCTION Four years after Congress passed the JOBS Act, requiring the relaxing of certain rules on raising funds, equity crowdfunding for non-accredited investors finally arrived May 16.

Fix Crowdfunding Bill Pass House

Crowdfund Beat News Wire, The Fix Crowdfunding Act (H.R. 4855) passed the  House of Representatives by a vote of 394 to 4. It doesn’t look much like the original bill we reported on here. As passed by the House, the bill allows special purpose vehicles, called “crowdfunding vehicles” to engage in crowdfunding, and to make investments in a crowdfunding issuer, subject to significant limitations. It also makes the Exchange Act registration exemption for crowdfunded issuers unconditional if the issuer has a public float of less than $75 million. The Supporting America’s Innovators Act of 2016 (H.R. 4854) creates an exemption from the Investment Company Act…

Daft or Deft – Trump the National Debt

By Steve Cinelli , CrowdFundBeat Sr. Editor, @stevecinelli Can the political narrative get any stranger, and in many ways, even incredulous?   First off, the country is undergoing an election season wherein the two front runners are disdained by the majority of Americans.  One (the Dem) purports to have experience, but seriously, she merely has had “exposure”:  yes, a nice (planned) resume, but has she actually accomplished anything as a statesperson or legislator?  Ask about “her” treaties or “her” laws or initiatives that have translated into real progress or meaning, domestically or abroad. Seems to be a goose-egg. But give her credit for marketing…  Then the other…
