Going public via reverse mergers requires a quality shell company with which to consummate a deal. Unfortunately, many a shell may come with excessive “skeletons in the closet” for a clean deal to be transacted quickly. A typical shell got that way because the previous business died inside. Previous litigation or liability may have tainted what was once a pristine public vehicle. In addition, the previous structure of some shells may provide a square-peg-in-a-round-hole fit with the intended target company. Hence, many companies now either opt for one of the following options (listed in order of increasing cost and decreasing relative speed):
If a previously bankrupted company has been properly “baptized” through proper clean-up by an experienced securities attorney, then there may exist an opportunity to acquire a relatively risk-free shell for a reasonable price. Much of our inventory includes these types of shells.
Choosing which direction to run in taking your company public will typically be made based on the speed with which you need to move and the appropriate amount you have as a budget to complete a deal.
If a company wishes to go public, but lacks clear, concise and audited financial statements, doesn’t necessarily need immediate liquidity or doesn’t require a high trading volume, then going with a grey or pink sheet public shell corporation may be the solution. Pink and grey sheet stocks are public in that they have a transfer agent (TA) a trading symbol and some existing shareholders.
Greys and pinks are often used in Rule 504 registered public offerings, Rule 504 accredited offerings and other exempt intra-state securities deals. Some companies may wish to become listed as a pink or grey sheet because they want some of the benefit of being publicly-traded without some of the stringent reporting requirements. In the case of many start-up firms, the grey and pink sheet market provides companies with a way to be public before attracting attention on various acquisitions or growth revenue that the firm may like to keep secret before shares are actively traded on the exchange.
Pink sheets are typically regulated by state securities laws are less subject to the rules of national exchanges. With the proper work, grey sheets can move to pink sheets and pink sheets can eventually begin trading on the OTC. Grey sheet stocks typically move up by filing a Form 10 (or similar) as well as a 15c2-11 application.
Pink Sheets can come in various forms and are often classified by trading vs. non-trading and reporting vs. non-reporting. Priced lower than any other OTC-listed pink sheet companies are subject to the Penny Stock Rules of the SEC Act of 1934.
Much to the credit of OTC Markets, pink sheets are becoming obsolete as a tool for raising capital and often duping investors. The downside risk of such shells is they lack the full disclosure requirements which are needed to make relevant investment decisions. When it comes to pink and grey sheets buyers must always beware. While these types of shell companies have their place in the market, we rarely deal in them as most often they provide fodder for nefarious and unethical activity.
The highest quality public shells trade on the OTC (Over the Counter) market. Like the NASDAQ, the OTCMarkets includes a centralized trading quotation and trading system where companies who maintain current in their reporting with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)–with properly-audited financials–may list their company securities.
OTC-compliant shells are the most desired as they include audited financial statements and fully-transparent operations. Individuals and institutional investors are thus better able to assess companies for investment or acquisition by using reliable data to make expert opinion on any company’s relative value. Companies listed on the OTC are also not bound by additional rules placed on them by Self-Regulatory Organizations (SROs), which saves on cost and greatly improves the latitude and flexibility for promotion and raising capital.
OTCQB companies are subject to all the reporting requirements of the ‘34 Act including Form 10K annual reports, Form 10Q quarterly reports and Form 8K current reports. The OTC shells sold in the open market are some of the more expensive, but they also represent a powerful vehicle for raising money, making acquisitions, improving legitimacy and growing an enterprise.
At any given time, we hold various forms and types of shells in our company inventory. Please reach out to us with more information.
