Why Regulation A?

Regulation A offers a unique fundraising pathway for companies, blending elements of public and private financing. It’s an attractive option for many businesses due to:

  • Increased Access to Capital: Tier 2 offerings under Regulation A allow companies to raise up to $75 million annually from both accredited and non-accredited investors.
  • Public Exposure: While less burdensome than a full IPO, Regulation A provides a platform for public exposure, potentially increasing brand recognition and customer engagement.
  • Investor Engagement: Offerings can provide a unique opportunity to build a loyal investor base and engage directly with your community.
  • Flexibility and Control: Regulation A generally provides more control over the terms and structure of the offering compared to traditional public offerings.

What are the main differences between Regulation A and Regulation Crowdfunding?

Reg A allows for higher capital raises (up to $75 million) compared to Reg CF ($5 million), and it offers more flexibility in terms of advertising and ongoing reporting requirements. Also, Reg A is more suited for companies seeking a larger capital raise and possibly a path to becoming a publicly traded company.

Reg A has two tiers: Tier 1, for offerings of up to $20 million in a 12-month period, and Tier 2, for offerings up to $75 million in the same period. The tiers have different reporting, disclosure, and investor qualification requirements.
