“With around 20% of the Stockhouse community identifying themselves as accredited investors, the Stockhouse Deal Room gives public companies access to literally tens of thousands of new qualified investors to help them complete their private placement financings,” says Justin Meiklem, VP of Stockhouse. “By delivering a massive new source of qualified investors along with a streamlined electronic platform for managing a public company's financing, the Deal Room has the potential to make a major impact on the funding crisis that has hit small cap companies in Canada and the US.”
The Deal Room is currently launching with 3 private placement financings including:
“The Stockhouse Deal Room is a real game changer in terms of public company financing,” says Alex Read, CEO of Movarie. “The platform is innovative and the value of adding the Deal Room to our quiver of capital raising options is enormous.”
In the past, a public company could rely on a broker or brokerage firm to bring their clients into a deal and close the financing, but those days are long over,” says Mirsad Jakubovic, CFO of Medifocus Inc. “Now, public companies need to utilize new ways of finding qualified investors for their financings and the Stockhouse Deal Room delivers this capability.”
Ian Clifford, founder and CEO of EEStor Corporation stated: "EEStor is very excited to participate in the launch of the Deal Room platform. As a public issuer we are often frustrated with the limited reach of our offerings and to (finally) have a true "21st century" platform to engage with accredited investors online is extremely compelling for us."
“Private placement financings used to be the exclusive domain of brokers and their small network of high net worth clients,” says Robert Cook, Senior Vice President, Market Development at the Canadian Stock Exchange. “The investor sitting at home in Red Deer, even if they were accredited, just didn't have a way to participate in these deals or even know they exist. Now with web-based platforms like the Stockhouse Deal Room, accredited investors from all over the country can learn about and participate in financings like never before.”
The Stockhouse Deal Room not only offers access to tens of thousands of accredited investors, it also enables public companies to use a very streamlined web-based platform to manage and monitor their capital raise including:
The Stockhouse Deal Room is powered by InvestX.com. Investx.com has licensed its technology and intellectual property to Waverley Corporate Financial Services Ltd. (Waverley), a registered exempt market dealer in the Provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Quebec and Ontario.
The Deal Room is meant to act in conjunction with the traditional person-to-person and professional network tactics used by public companies today.
Compared to the traditional workflow alone, the Deal Room offers public companies several advantages according to the company including:
Greater and Less Expensive Access to Retail Investor Capital
-Stockhouse will allow Issuers to cost-effectively reach a wider audience of accredited investors as well as the ability to effectively and aggressively target existing shareholders.
Greater Marketing Efficiency
-Not only does a streamlined online process lend itself more naturally to modern marketing techniques but the lead capture, marketing automation, and conversion facilities of the Deal Room landing pages will lead to an increased level of funding for each marketing dollar spent.
Reduced Leakage at Closing
-The reduced time to present, collect signatures, and approve documentation via the online process will reduce the number of deals lost between expression of interest and closing.
Simplified Document Retention and Compliance
-The nature of the online document signing process will increase the certainty that paperwork will adhere to regulatory requirements. Waverley oversight lends an extra level of comfort.
Increased Institutional Investor Exposure
-As the Deal Room becomes a standard part of institutional investor workflows, Deal Room listing will expose issuers to a wider audience of institutional investors than would otherwise be reached. The streamlined workflows, transparency, and additional due diligence will make it easier for institutions to participate.
