Finova Financial presenteert JOBS Crypto Offering (JCO): gereguleerde publieke effectenemissies voor niet-geaccrediteerde investeerders met cryptogeld

Een JCO stelt grote en kleine investeerders in staat met cryptogeld te investeren in gevestigde bedrijven met tastbare activa

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Finova Financial, een provider van digitale financiële diensten die de toekomst van de mondiale bankensector transformeren, heeft vandaag een nieuw fondsenwervingsproces aangekondigd: JOBS Crypto Offering (JCO) . Eenmaal voltooid, geeft het investeerders de mogelijkheid te participeren in voorheen niet-beursgenoteerde bedrijven door middel van cryptovaluta.

De JCO is een hybride vorm van ‘initial coin offerings’ en een initiële aandelenemissie, waardoor bedrijven sneller kapitaal kunnen ophalen met investeringen in cryptovaluta’s. In een JCO worden ‘tokens’ die voor aandeelbezit staan gevolgd in een ‘distributed ledger’ of blockchain en verkocht. Deze tokens worden verkocht conform een registratiemelding die voldoet aan de Securities Act, of in een transactie die is uitgesloten van registratie conform de Securities Act krachtens wet 251 van diezelfde Securities Act.

 

Finova Financial Announces The JOBS Crypto Offering (JCO): A Path To A Regulated Public Securities Offering for Non-Accredited Investors Using Cryptocurrency

A JCO would allow both large and small investors to use cryptocurrency to invest in an established company with tangible assets

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Finova Financial, a digital financial services provider transforming the future of global banking, announced today the creation of a fundraising process known as a JOBS Crypto Offering (JCO) which, when completed, will give investors the opportunity to invest in equity ownership of previously privately-held companies using cryptocurrency.

The JCO is a hybrid of initial coin offering investments (ICOs), which allow companies to raise capital more readily through cryptocurrency investments and an initial public offering of stock. In a JCO, “tokens” representing ownership of shares of capital stock would be tracked on a distributed ledger or blockchain (Tokens) and would be sold pursuant to a registration statement filed under the Securities Act or a transaction which is exempt from registration under the Securities Act pursuant to Rule 251 under the Securities Act (i.e. Regulation A+).

The JCO is the brainchild of serial fintech entrepreneur, Gregory Keough, who is the current CEO of Finova Financial and former CEO of Mobile Financial Services, a MasterCard and Telefonica Joint Venture for mobile financial services globally.

“I liked the idea of the ICOs when they were first introduced as they looked like an exciting way for startups to raise funds from small investors, but I had concerns about regulatory compliance practices, especially for tokens that are clearly securities,” noted Finova CEO, Gregory Keough. “I designed the JCO as a process to open the doors of opportunity for the small investor, allowing them to participate using cryptocurrency in security offerings in compliance with SEC regulations. I envision the Tokens sold in JCOs being listed on an Alternative Trading System, creating a liquid security and providing companies with an alternative to a traditional initial public offering.”

“We think the JCO has the potential to have a massive impact on the way startups raise funds, while creating some much-needed regulatory clarity in the crypto-investing space,” said Sheel Mohnot, Partner, 500 Startups.

JCO: How it Works

The JOBS Crypto Offering (JCO) is a new financing process that allows for companies to issue securities to the general public in exchange for cryptocurrency or other funds in compliance with SEC regulations. Ownership of such securities would be represented by entries in a distributed electronic network or database maintained by or on behalf of the Company in accordance with Section 224 of the Delaware General Corporation Law, which we refer to as Tokens. The Tokens would be listed on an Alternative Trading System that is compliant with Regulation ATS under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

*About the JOBS Act

Passed in 2012, the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS Act) was designed to help small businesses raise capital by easing certain securities regulations, expanding options for entrepreneurs to seek out everyday investors to raise capital and grow their companies via online crowdfunding platforms. The JOBS Act was also known as the Crowdfund Act because under Title III it created a way for businesses to use crowdfunding to raise capital by issuing securities – which had never been done before. Along with the crowdfunding aspects of the JOBS Act, the act also changed a number of laws and regulations to make it easier for companies to raise capital privately and go public.
