Does this sound like you: You have a business model and product/service that is in demand and growing steadily with auditable operating records and financials… maybe you have some debt to eliminate and or pay down or a production or service demand to meet, a mission to accomplish and a story to tell which is going to take funding to assure that future growth?
At some point for certain companies it just makes sense to seriously evaluate raising money and/or utilizing the liquidity of the public market by bringing on the support of shareholders both private and public through various types of stock offerings and company re-structuring plans.
There are many things to consider and specific steps that need to be taken over a period of time in order to bring that whole process to fruition. It is for many the catalyst for a solid base of growth which moves their business to a whole other level. A much deeper level of commitment is required to maintain and remain in control of the growth and direction of the expanding business, all the while developing value.
If you are going to consider raising money through Reg. A+, you should evaluate where your business is currently and where it is you wish to take it.
There is obviously much to consider but some basic considerations are: that your business is at minimum 2 -3 years old with at least 2 years of auditable financials, a product or service that is in demand and is predicted to grow at a predictable pace if it has a clear path to do so. As is the case with many businesses you might have various forms of debt and obligations to pay back along with needing to generate working capital or project funding on a regular basis in order to keep moving the business plan forward and accomplishing the milestones set forth in it.
Maybe you are in a position that in order to get to that next level you need to attract some new key employees or maybe try to acquire a competing business or a technology that would be key component to your business plan, or buy that piece of real estate for expansion. Raising Regulation A money could help you accomplish those things and much, much more.
Becoming a public company, merging with, acquiring or being acquired by another company are all options that exist to grow your business. These may or may not be the best solution for your particular circumstance, but if your business has reached a point where some of those things mentioned above apply to you, then you at least owe it to yourself and your future to find out more in order to make an informed decision.
Although the process can be daunting, there are professionals who you can count on to give you straight answers and guide you through the entire process from start to finish.
