http://www.TheSecuritiesAttorneys.com Reg A+ and the IPO Valley of Death
This is written for the CEO of a fast growing company. Many of these companies are negative cash flow. Companies always need cash to grow on.
However, when a you file a full IPO with the SEC you are limited on who you can accept money from. You can only accept money from people you already know and qualified institutional buyers. Your angels are probably fully invested and the institutions may not care. You have to wait months to get through the SEC to get the IPO proceeds but you have to pay all the expenses now. This period where you need more money but are limited in getting money I call the “IPO Valley of Death”
Reg A+ offers some relief here. First, you can test the waters to see if the deal will work. Second, can do a Regulation S (offshore) offering while you have filed with the SEC. Third, you may also be able to do a Reg D, 506c offering (accredited investors only). These will help you get through the Valley of Death
