Attracting capital remains challenging for most investors due to regulatory burdens, higher capital costs, and the high risk, high return nature of venture capital. Often, capital projects won’t get off the ground unless projected returns are above market rates. This “mini-IPO” or “on-ramp to IPO” allows investors to raise up to $50 million in a 12 month period from the general public, with streamlined initial and ongoing compliance costs. This means a greater pool of investors without all of the costs of a traditional IPO or without the need to have a predetermined list of investors.
Davis & Kuelthau is at the forefront of Regulation A+ and its trending benefits for clients.

Mortgage interest rates increased through 2016 and are expected to increase periodically throughout the coming year. Because higher interest rates can make traditional financing for a commercial real estate project more expensive, other financing options should be considered to stabilize or reduce the cost of capital necessary to complete a commercial real estate project. Larger real estate projects often use a variety of financing sources to fund the acquisition and improvement of commercial real estate. This combination of different financing sources is referred to as a “capital stack.” As mortgage debt becomes more expensive, a diverse capital stack can reduce the…
