What is an Initial Public Offering “IPO”?
An initial public offering, or IPO, is the very first sale of stock issued by a company to the public. Prior to an IPO the company is considered private, with a relatively small number of shareholders made up primarily of early investors (such as the founders, their families and friends) and professional investors (such as venture capitalists or angel investors). The public, on the other hand, consists of everybody else – any individual or institutional investor who wasn’t involved in the early days of the company and who is interested in buying shares of the company. Until a company’s stock is offered for sale to the public, the public is unable to invest in it. You can potentially approach the owners of a private company about investing, but they’re not obligated to sell you anything. Public companies, on the other hand, have sold at least a portion of their shares to the public to be traded on a stock exchange. This is why an IPO is also referred to as “going public.”

Is Regulation A+ Available to Public Companies?
Reg A+ is now available to reporting public companies because on May 24, 2018, President Trump signed the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection ACT. Section 508, “Improving Access to Capital” which now allows reporting public companies to raise up to $50MM from the general public under Regulation A+ and you are exempt from Blue Sky State filings.
