Fall 2017 Private Placement Capital Update

The year is already coming to a close and, with the changing color of the leaves comes Regulation D Resources Fall Private Placement Capital Markets Update!

2017 has been a steady year with regards to Regulation D Private Placement Offerings. Slight volume volatility in April was the only outlier with the balance of the year at or above expected execution volume. Execution volume is approximately on par with 2016 which should lead to another year in the $1.5 trillion range insofar as total capital raised under the Regulation D programs.  Following is a summarized market update:

Real Estate:  Still the top sector by volume with apartment and multi-family class real estate transactions being the leading sector. We are also seeing some select residential development gaining traction and also focus on specialized care facilities.

Listing prices in the residential real estate market remain near historical highs while for-sale inventory continued to be in short supply in September, according to new data from realtor.com®. Inventory continues to sell at a rapid pace, moving 10 percent more quickly than in September 2017. The median age of properties on realtor.com in September is 69 days, which indicates that properties are selling eight days faster than this time last year- even as prices continue to reach double-digit growth.

Earlier this summer, the nationwide median home list price reached $275,000 for the first time. Now at $274,000, the median list price is still 10 percent higher than one year ago.

Approximately 85% of the real estate offerings executed were equity based offerings and approximately 30% intended on using leverage or external financing as part of the capital stack.  Other notable sectors in real estate were self storage facilities (acquisitions and new construction) and triple net properties.

Energy:  Oil and gas has had a solid year as the number two sector by volume.  Stabilized energy prices have contributed to renewed interest in development and also re-entry and re-work type transactions.

North Sea Brent crude oil spot prices averaged $56 per barrel (b) in September, an increase of $4/b from the average in August. EIA forecasts Brent spot prices to average $52/b in 2017 and $54/b in 2018, which is $1/b higher in 2017 and $2/b higher in 2018 compared with last month’s forecast. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) average crude oil prices are forecast to be $3.50/b lower than Brent prices in 2018. NYMEX contract values for January 2018 delivery that traded during the five-day period ending October 5 suggest that a range of $40/b to $65/b encompasses the market expectation for January WTI prices at the 95% confidence level.

We have seen a slight decrease in solar and wind based opportunities compared to 2016.

Technology:  Tech is our third highest volume sector with software applications leading the tech sector in execution volume.

85% of our transactional volume is 506(c) based offerings.  We are also seeing a significant number of clients using the RDR Investor Web Portal Application to promote the offering and manage the compliance and subscription processes.

The SEC’s elimination of Rule 505 has not had any negative impact as most issuers were not using the 505 exemption especially after the launch of 506(c). The 504 exemptions amount increase to $5mm is a benefit although most issuers at the higher end of that range should consider 506(c) unless they already have investors identified for the maximum offering amount.

Real Estate Top Volume Sector – Private Placement Fundings For First Quarter 2017

Regulation D Resources (“RDR”) is excited to announce our Private Placement Market commentary for the first quarter of 2017.

 

Sector Information

Real estate led the way in the first quarter of 2017 as the top volume sector for execution and funding of private placements through RDR.  Prime sectors were multi-family acquisitions including value-add opportunities and Class A properties.  Senior care facilities and mixed-use residential/retail type developments were also high volume real estate sectors in early 2017.

While the heady days of single family value-add and “rehab and flip” type opportunities are getting more crowded in terms of competition – we still saw healthy volume in operators seeking to raise and deploy capital for these types of offerings.  Many of these operators focus on soon to be gentrified areas in urban centers or deploy capital into suburban areas in the path of growth.

Fossil fuel related offerings remained steady in terms of volume and are the second highest grossing volume sector executing private placement offerings.  With energy prices stabilizing over the last 16 months we have seen more normalized activity in the energy sector regarding execution of private placement offerings.  52% of fossil fuel offerings were acquiring existing production and 48% were either development or a mix of acquisition and development.

Technology related offerings were third in volume with a wide array of technology based opportunities that executed offerings through RDR in early 2017.

 

Offering Statistics

Equity offerings account for approximately 85% of executed offerings and 90%+ of RDR clients are executing under the 506(c) exemption allowing general advertising of the offering.  A significant majority of clients are also supporting the offering with the deployment of an RDR Investor Portal website to manage promotion and compliance processes.

The average offering range is between $2,000,000 and $25,000,000 and the average minimum subscription amount is between $10,000 and $25,000 per investor.

Three Reasons You Should Be Using a Regulation D Resources Investor Portal to Support your 506(c) Offering

Executing a 506(c) based offering?  Here are three reasons why you should be using a Regulation D Resources Investor Portal to support your 506(c) Offering:

(1) Dedicated Web Presence

A key component to effective marketing of a 506(c) based offering is the ability to drive investor prospect traffic to a dedicated front-side portal to engage them successfully.  The ability to have a custom front-end website that can provide key details about the company and investment opportunity and generate interest in learning more is critical to properly converting investor prospect traffic.

 

(2) Providing all Investment Vetting, Subscription and Compliance Processes Online

Of all the feedback we receive on our investor portals – one of the primary we hear most often is that the portal “built confidence with investor prospects”.  Using a high technology tool like an investor web portal to support your offering and manage interactions and processes with investors can dramatically enhance the prospects confidence in your company.  You only get one chance to make a solid and professional first impression with investor prospects – and using an investor portal speaks volumes to prospects about your company’s commitment to them as investors and your dedication to executing the offering in a compliant manner.

Further, having a portal that is tracking all investor actions, managing all documentation, and managing investor verifications provides the comfort of knowing you have compliant and accurate securities sales being executed.

 

(3)  Offering Administrative Management

Managing an offering can be time consuming.  One of the major benefits of an investor portal is the ability to manage and track all processes, all users, documents, and tasks.  The RDR Investor Portal provides significant capabilities in the management of users, communicating with prospects and investors users, managing tasks, and keeping investors updated with timely investor relations updates and notifications.

When we developed the admin side of our portal – we did so with the knowledge that many of our clients have multiple businesses they are operating an time is valuable.  The ability to login as an admin and instantly access a real time offering task list was critical.  The mobile friendly aspect of our portals also ensures that clients can stay ahead of tasks and interactions on the go.

 

Executing or planning execution of a 506(c) offering?  You should strongly consider deploying an RDR investor portal website to support the offering and increase you capability for success.

Saas Model Investor Portals – Fees and Deployment Information

Regulation D Resources is excited to announce that, as of February 15th, 2017, all new Investor Portal orders shall be on the new Software as a Service (“SaaS”) model.
SaaS Investor Portals will operate on RDR’s internal server and the client will be charged the standard portal build fee in addition to monthly access fees and an annual renewal.

The monthly access fee provides for what “old model” clients were paying for in terms of third party hosting costs and flipbook software to run the PPM flipbook – thus there is little difference in the monthly costs to a client between the old model and the new SaaS platform.

Benefits? Our team will be able to launch portals more efficiently under the new model and apply technical updates more efficiently and effectively.

Fees are detailed below:

Portal Build and Operating Fees

RDR Offering Preparation Clients:  $3,000 (one-time fee)
Non- RDR Offering Preparation Clients:  $4,000 (one-time fee)

Monthly Access Fee:  $30.00 (minimum 6 month commitment)
