Vancouver (March 2, 2017) - True Leaf Medicine International Ltd. (CSE: MJ) has filed an offering statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission to conduct a $3 million Regulation A+ securities offering in the United States and Canada. The net proceeds of this offering will be used primarily to advance True Leaf’s pet product business and conduct research on cannabis for pets.
Utilizing Regulation A+, True Leaf plans to make its securities available to friends, customers, distributors, vendors, fans and new fans who may not otherwise qualify as accredited investors. True Leaf has the opportunity to grow at a rapid pace over the next two years if it has the funding in place. The company wants to share its growth story with everyone and ensure that its future success benefits more than just a few.
“We considered crowdfunding the development of a new True Leaf Pet product line, but for us it just didn’t feel right if the people backing our growth couldn't also have the chance to benefit from equity," said True Leaf CEO Darcy Bomford.
“Regulation A+ allows us to advertise and reach out to everyone who may have an interest in our products and business,” he said. “It is similar to a pre-sale or perk crowdfunding campaign offered on platforms like Kickstarter or Indiegogo, but also allows us to offer participants equity in our company and the knowledge that some of the funds are directed towards research on cannabis for pets. Our core customers are animal lovers who want the best for their companions. We would love them to become investors and share our journey.”
True Leaf is the first Canadian company listed on a stock exchange to use Regulation A+ since it was adopted in June of 2015. Regulation A+ allows issuers to raise up to US$50 million in a 12-month period. Investors are not required to be accredited but must receive an offering circular that has been qualified by the Securities and Exchange Commission. True Leaf will not become a US reporting issuer as a result of using Regulation A+. True Leaf’s securities sold in the offering will not be subject to a hold period in the United States.
