What is a Reg A+ offering?

Posted by Vanderbilt Financial Group on 10/19/20 12:04 PM


A Regulation A+ offering, also known as a Reg A+ offering, is a public offering that is exempt from registration requirements as instituted by the Securities Act. Regulation A+ offerings cannot exceed $50 million in any 12-month period and must still file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) despite the exemption.

There are two different tiers for Reg A+ offerings: Tier 1 offerings cannot exceed $20 million dollars in any one-year period, and Tier 2 offerings cannot exceed $50 million in any one-year period. Some people refer to a Reg A+ offering as a “Mini IPO.”

How does it differ from other offerings?

The one major aspect that differentiates Reg A+ offerings from other types of offerings is that nonaccredited investors can invest in Reg A+ offerings. This means that the general public is allowed to invest, which is not true for other types of offerings such as Regulation D offerings, which only accept funds from accredited investors.

Why choose Regulation A+?

There are various advantages to Reg A+ offerings over other types of offerings, such as:

  • The ability to accept investments from the general public
  • Tier 2 offerings are exempt from state review
  • The ability to publicly advertise to raise money
  • Companies can “test the waters” or gauge the public’s interest on investing before committing to a Regulation A+ offering
  • Can be cheaper and/or easier than an IPO (Initial Public Offering)

World Tree
