SEC Reports On Regulation CF Crowdfunding Results So Far

The Securities and Exchange Commission’s Division of Economic and Risk Analysis issued its report on whether the post financial crisis legislation (Dodd Frank, Volcker Rule, etc.) has had a deleterious effect on the financial markets. It said NO.

With respect to crowdfunding DERA reported that: “(B)etween May 16, 2016, and December 31, 2016, excluding 24 withdrawn offerings and potential duplicate filings, there were 163 unique offerings by 156 issuers (including 7 issuers that filed for more than one crowdfunding offering)”

The average offering targeted $110,000 and the average amount raised was $290,000; equity was raised in 36% and debt in 20% of the offerings with hybrids in the rest.
