Many micro-cap CEOs consider uplisting to national exchanges a key goal in their company’s growth and development. At JMJ Financial, we’re actively working with many of the top-tier investment banking and advisory firms, helping companies achieve this important step. Many of our investments detailed below were made in conjunction with planned uplists and their accompanying capital raises. Here are some tips if you’re considering uplisting in your future.
It’s never too early to plan. Even if an uplist seems a long way down the road, getting feedback from investment banking firms and savvy investors like JMJ can keep you from making funding decisions that, while seeming viable today, only serve to create roadblocks down the road. Having a long-term investment partner who is keenly aware of the opportunities and sand traps on the journey makes sense.
Build your capital structure looking ahead. Many of our clients begin their uplisting journey with bridge funding from JMJ. We work in conjunction with your selected investment bank to structure terms that will not be an impediment to uplisting. We sometimes begin with small, liquidity-based investments allowing you to continue your growth path while we introduce you to potential investment banking partners, following that with larger, unsecured bridge funding prior to an uplist and large capital raise.
Don’t assume that you can’t uplist because your stock price and liquidity are low or your cap chart is complex. Working as a team with the Issuer and the investment bank, we’ve helped companies in these situations clean up balance sheets, execute reverses and go on to meet the national exchange requirements. And raise a ton of equity capital in the process. If your company has a compelling story, it may be worthwhile to speak with savvy investment professionals sooner rather than later.
