Received an email last night indication Motif will be participating in “Spot Secondary Offerings”. You need to subscribe separately to receive these deals in your inbox. I only got this email in my active account email address, not the IPO list. Full text of email below:
We are pleased to announce Motif will be offering the opportunity to participate in Spot Secondary Offerings.
What is a Spot Secondary?
A spot secondary is a public offering of already-issued shares, known as a secondary distribution, that does not require a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). While a spot secondary is typically offered to institutional investors, Motif is proud to offer the opportunity to individudal investors.
A Short Window
A spot secondary offering can typically be performed more quickly than other types of secondary offerings and, in most cases, a spot secondary offering is announced after market close. The book build (capturing investor demand) for the offering is done very quickly, usually in 2 to 4 hours and will begin trading next day. Shares that are issued through a spot secondary offering are typically priced at a discount to investors.
How Does a Spot Secondary Offering Work on Motif?
Motif Investors who opt into the spot secondary email list will receive email notification on the day of the Spot Secondary, typically 30 minutes after market close. The notification will include the offering details, the time frame in which you can place a funded order, and length of confirmation window upon pricing. The notification will also include a link to the offering prospectus which you can review for further information about the company including historical performance and risks associated with the offer.

Update 07/28/2017: Redfin IPO opened trading at $19.56. Traded well into the $20’s. Congrats to everyone involved. Disclosure: Long RDFN.
Redfin IPO allocations are in. 5.742%… BUMMER! Oh well, good luck to everyone participating. This is a cool company with lots of potential.
Lots of disappointment all around. A few positives… Demand was good which bodes well for the opening. Perhaps Goldman Sachs will become a long-term partner with Motif.
Motif is still relatively new at this. So it seems they could have cut off the reservation earlier. Also, the max started at $50,000, which some people probably took advantage of. Later in the day it was lowered to $10,000. No indication if that effected things.
Update 07/27/2016: Received only 16.8% of requested Sienna Pharmaceuticals allocation. Stock begins trading today.
Opening trade $19.05. Now over $19.75 for a 30+% gain.
Update 07/26/2016: Sienna Pharmaceuticals IPO prices mid-range at $15. Trading to begin tomorrow.
Update 07/26/2017: Redfin IPO available on Motif Investing.
Redfin IPO Closed as of 3:00 pm 07/26.
Notable that this Redfin IPO is led by Goldman Sachs. That is big news around here since they are one of the biggest underwriters on the Street. Expected to trade 07/28 in the range of $12-$14.

Since then, numerous other underwriters have partnered with Motif to bring IPOs and secondaries to the Motif investing platform. For a complete list of deals, see the table below.

Motif Investing Founder and CEO Hardeep Walia had this to say in a press release:
Any individual investor, regardless of account size or length of relationship, now has the opportunity to participate in big-name IPO transactions.
According to the press release, Motif IPOs will be “beginning soon” (update: it took more than a year to get the first JPM IPO on Motif). Investors can invest with a minimum of $250. The cost to buy into IPOs is zero. Selling costs then normal $4.95 per trade. Maximum investment amounts are usually $10,000 but can vary depending on the offering company.

How to Invest in Motif IPOs
Here at Access IPOs, I’m extremely excited by this news. Access to IPOs for small-time investors (like you and me) is a beautiful development in the markets. We can now participate in the type of investing once reserved for Wall Street’s most exclusive customers.
Our readers had lots of success investing in IPOs in the now defunct Loyal3 as well as Motif Investing. If you’re interested in the IPO process, you can read two reviews I’ve written on the subject. First is the Dave & Buster’s IPO which took place on Loyal3. Second is the Lending Club IPO which occurred at Fidelity. Both articles go through the IPO process and will help you prepare for upcoming events.
If you’re interested in investing in Motif IPOs, the most important step is to open a Motif Investing account today.
What’s also cool about Motif Investing is you can essentially create your own mutual fund and invest in 30 stocks for one small fee. Or invest in “motifs” that other members have created. You can also invest in individual stocks for just $4.95. Motifs of up to 30 stocks cost just $9.95 to trade. Click the banner below to learn more.
