Token Offering Considerations for the CVC Investor
Sponsored By: DLA Piper
6/26/2018 • 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
We are continuing to see an increase in token offerings with companies raising over $6.2 billion, including $1.7 billion by Telegram alone.
Although many of these token offerings are the first fundraising for a company, we are also seeing “hybrid” token offerings in which a company which has venture investors then raises capital through a token offering. Another variant is the initial funding of Untangled Labs, Inc. of $133M by traditional venture capitalists (and CVCs) through a pre-sale of a token led by Bain Capital.
Yet token offerings are still new, with no customary terms. In addition, the legal regimes governing token offerings in the US, such as securities and money transmitter laws, continue to be ambiguous.
This presentation will provide an overview of the token market and then discuss the issues that a CVC investor should consider when investing in token offerings, and the terms of a proposed token offering by an existing portfolio company.
Attendees will be invited to submit questions about pressing concerns during registration, as well as during the Q/A session.
