Since the 1930’s, Regulation A has been unremarkable as a little known and seldom used “exemption”
Today’s commonly known Solicitation Exemption for the Regulation D Securities Offerings (ie, “SEC Rule 504” and “SEC Rule 506” of Regulation D) only allows companies to publicly market and solicit investments from only the wealthiest 3% of Americans. This unequal access for the other 97% of Americans is eliminated with the Regulation A and a Company’s listing on the “Alternative Securities Market” (www.AlternativeSecuritiesMarket.com)
Non-U.S. Citizens from all around the world are also allowed to investment in all companies listed on the Alternative Securities Market pursuant to Regulation S.
The added benefit to all private and institutional investors of the Alternative Securities Market is the “Increased Transparency” associated with the Companies listed on the Alternative Securities Market. All companies listed on the Alternative Securities Market with a Regulation A Offering have gone through a process of submission and review with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission, much like a company filing for an IPO and Listing on an Over-the-Counter Securities Exchange or Regulated Stock Exchange. Only after a complete review and qualification by the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission, and subsequent filings and reviews by State Securities Regulators, can a Company begin selling its securities to the public.
Once a Company listed on the Alternative Securities Market has their Securities Registration Statement deemed qualified by the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission and has completed its State Filings, the company becomes an “Alternative Securities Market public reporting Company”, which by Alternative Securities Market Definition obligates the Company to:
Quarterly Un-Audited Financial Statements: Company to furnish all Investors and Alternative Securities Markets Group a complete set of un-audited financial statements within 30 days of the close of each business quarter. Company’s Quarterly Financial Statements to also be posted for public view on the Company’s page at www.AlternativeSecuritiesMarket.com.
Annual Audited Financial Statements: Company to furnish to all Investors and Alternative Securities Markets Group a complete set of third party audited financial statements within 60 days of the close of each business year. Company’s Annual Financial Statement to be posted for public view on the Company’s page at www.AlternativeSecuritiesMarket.com.
Monthly State of the Company Letter to Investors: The CEO will issue to all Investors and to Alternative Securities Markets Group, a "Monthly State of the Company" letter detailing the current state of all business operations for the Company. Letter to be posted for public view on the Company’s page at www.AlternativeSecuritiesMarket.com.
Quarterly Conference Call: The CEO or Executive of the Company will hold a quarterly video / telephone conference call with investors no sooner than 10 days, but no greater than 30 days, after the posting of the Company's quarterly financial report. The recorded Conference call will also be made available for public listen and/or viewing on the Company’s Page at www.AlternativeSecuritiesMarket.com.
5. Corporate Actions: Company must disclose to all Investors and to Alternative Securities Markets Group all: Dividends, Stock Splits, New Stock Issues, Reverse Splits, Name Changes, Mergers, Acquisitions, Dissolutions, Bankruptcies or Liquidations. All must be reported to Investors and to Alternative Securities Markets Group no less than TEN CALENDAR DAYS prior to the record date.
These types of reporting requirements are not associated with Regulation D Offerings and are generally only associated with a company listed for trade on a Regulated Market.
Other advantages of the Alternative Securities Market:
Companies Seeking a listing of their Company’s Securities for Initial Direct Public Offering do not pay “upfront listing fees” like they would with an OTC Market Listing or Regulated Market Listing. The cost for a Company list on an OTC Market or Regulated Stock Market can cost a company from as little as $25K for an OTC Market Listing to more than Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars for Regulated Market Listings. Companies soliciting investments on Sites like Gust.com, EquityNet.com and other “crowdfunding sites” only pay nominal listing fees, but can only solicit investments from the richest 3% of Americans, and generally non-U.S. Investors either cannot invest, or the Company’s do not know how to allow a foreign investor to invest in their company. The Alternative Securities Markets Group becomes a Joint Venture partner with each company, taking a small equity stake in each listed company in lieu of any upfront cash deposits, and only charges each company a $75 per month public reporting fee for all SEC and Public Filings and Reportings. An Alternative Securities Market Listed Company is then marketed to both Institutional and Private Investors through the United States and Internationally, and is open to investments from Institutional Investors and Private Investors (accredited and non-accredited)
