The JOBS Act is one of the biggest game-changing pieces of legislation ever to grace the financial markets. With capital raising from project, reward and equity crowdfunding portals hitting the multi-billion dollar mark, the opportunities for both start-ups and seasoned businesses alike are astounding.
It is expected that the IPO and reverse merger market will be positively impacted by these key changes in legislation. Crowdfunded companies will require assistance for going public for a number of reasons. First, as equity investors in such companies demand a liquid exit, mid and micro-cap firms will require public status to provide such an opportunity. In most instances, a flawed and inadequate secondary market is inefficient in providing true liquidity for shareholders. Finally, changes in SEC requirements for reporting based on total shareholder number may naturally force some crowdfunded companies into public status, whether they are prepared or not.
The advantages of performing a reverse merger with a clean public shell for crowdfunded companies, include the following:
- Speed & Agility
- Cost & Affordability
- Growth Capital Funding
- Investor “Exit” Liquidity
