Investor Connect Podcast

Type of Secondary Transactions

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

There are several types of secondary transactions as follows:

Confidentially marketed public offerings -- these offerings go to institutional investors.

These transactions use an S3 form to provide shares to known buyers.

Bought deal -- these shares are bought by an underwriter who takes the risk of the transaction.

Since the risk is shouldered by one underwriter the shares are typically priced higher.

PIPEs -- these are Private Investments in Public Entities and give private investors the ability to buy shares directly in the company without public disclosure.

PIPEs are more heavily discounted.

Block trades -- these are transactions used by smaller sellers to sell their shares directly to another buyer without having to go through an underwriter.

These transactions provide alternative ways of completing a secondary sale.


Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.

Let’s go startup something today.
