How long should this take?

By: Robert Grosshandler | February 24, 2018

The Dropbox IPO really triggered … Continue reading How long should this take?

Accretive vs. Dilutive

By: Robert Grosshandler | October 06, 2017

One of the most frequent questions we get from prospective investors is whether or not all the stock being earned by members is accretive or dilutive.  It’s a bit of a technical subject, but it’s really important to why we’re doing this, and how’s it all going to play out in the end.

FINRA Update – Slow Progress

By: Robert Grosshandler | August 01, 2017

FINRA is the regulatory body that should issue us a ticker symbol, the most important step on the road to being quoted on a market (and therefore, more easily bought and sold).  We began the process of getting our ticker symbol in January!  Because we’re a pioneer in the Reg. A+ space, we (and they) … Continue reading FINRA Update – Slow Progress

Why we can’t sell shares in four states – Texas, Florida, Arizona, & North Dakota

By: Robert Grosshandler | April 21, 2017

iConsumer is able to sell shares to the public because we’re taking advantage of the 2012 JOBS Act.  More specifically, Title IV, Tier 2 of that legislation.  Basically, that legislation is an exemption from some of the most expensive and complex rules and regulations that govern the sale of securities like our stock. The JOBS … Continue reading Why we can’t sell shares in four states – Texas, Florida, Arizona, & North Dakota

Equity Crowdfunding – The Next Chapter

By: Robert Grosshandler | June 08, 2016

Perhaps the most eagerly awaited portion of the JOBS Act, Title III, the part of that act that actually has “crowdfunding” in its name, became live in May.
