Reg A+ services expand platform’s value proposition for both investors and issuers
Netcapital Inc. (Nasdaq: NCPL, NCPLW) (the “Company”), a digital private capital markets ecosystem, today announced that its consulting group, Netcapital Advisors, is now hosting a Regulation A+ offering by Thumzup® Media on the netcapital.com website, representing its first such listing. We believe the addition of the Reg A+ funding structure to Netcapital’s suite of fintech services is a milestone achievement in technology and product development for the Company.
Like Reg CF funding, Reg A+ funding is another JOBS Act framework for capital raising. Reg A+ exempts small companies from registration requirements for issuing securities, and enables issuers to raise up to $75 million from non-accredited investors and accredited investors. Reg CF enables businesses to raise up to $5 million from non-accredited investors.
“Hosting our first Regulation A+ offering is a milestone for the Netcapital ecosystem and a strong addition to the scope of services we offer for the benefit of both investors and issuers,” said Martin Kay, CEO of Netcapital Inc. “With Reg A+, we are expanding our addressable market with later stage issuers, which is a key part of our growth strategy. Netcapital can now help Reg A+ issuers maximize their capital raising potential, and by servicing these offerings, we give investors the opportunity to become early-stage investors in emerging companies with strong growth ambitions. This strategic step forward expands our value proposition and is expected to raise our competitive profile within our industry.”
Thumzup’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Robert Steele, commented, “To date we have received over $750,000 in funded subscriptions to our qualified Regulation A+ offering.1 This puts Thumzup in the top 10 percent of all currently active equity crowdfunding offerings including both Regulation A+ and Regulation CF, ranked by amount raised as of August 6, 2023.2 We look forward to speaking with some of Netcapital’s 100,000+ users who would like to know more about Thumzup.”
