Update 05/17/2017 11am: G1 Therapeutics IPO opened at $15 and fell $14. Now hovering at that level. Lousy market day not helpful.
No exciting pop on this one. Back to the drawing board! Demand was low in this IPO. Shares were available for a while on Motif indicating lack of retail interest. Priced at low end of range.
I received an allocation of about 53% of what I requested.
Two readers reported a similar percentage allocation.
Update 05/10/2017: Mota Group IPO now available on Motif Investing website. The company makes “recreational and commercial drones, smart wearables and innovative mobile accessories for smartphone and camera users.”
This is a small deal of around $6.5 million underwritten by Joseph Gunnar & Co LLC. Expected to begin trading 05/18 under the symbol “MOTA”. Priced at $10.
Update 05/10/2017: G1 Therapeutics IPO available on Motif. This is a legit IPO led by J.P. Morgan. The second of its kind. Act fast, shares will disappear quickly. Do your due diligence after your reservation. You can always back out.
New Info: The IPO is now expected to price on 05/16 for a 05/17 trading debut.
Update 05/06/2017: AcceleratedPharma IPO now available on Motif. Expected to price 05/10/2017. Haven’t had a chance to take a look yet. Price range $4-$6.
Update 05/04/2017: Motif now offering a Preferred Stock offering for a company called Arlington Asset Investment Corp (AI). This is not an IPO. AI is already publicly traded. Motif is utilizing its IPO platform for other uses. Closed 05/05.
Update 05/01/2017: ENDRA Life Sciences no longer active.
Update 04/26/2017: Catasys prices at $4.80. Trading up 10%.
Update 04/12/2017: Another new secondary expected on the Motif Investing platform. Catasys (CATS) estimated for 04/25. Catasys is a data analytics company in the healthcare space.
This is an OTC company looking to upgrade exchanges, similar to ActiveCare (no longer active) and Blue Sphere. Underwriting by Joseph Gunnar & Co. LLC.
Not much to get exited about with these companies. The underwriter is tapping the Motif Platform to generate interest. There doesn’t appear to be an investor advantage to participating. Evaluate like any other long-term equity investment.
Update 04/06/2017: ENDRA Life Sciences back on the upcoming IPO list. Estimated to start trading 04/19/2017.
Blue Sphere follow-on estimated to take place on 04/13/2017.
ActiveCare appears to be withdrawn.
Update 03/31/2017: Motif announces Blue Sphere secondary/follow-on offering. At first glance, this looks similar to ActiveCare in that it trades on the OTC markets and is filing to trade on the Nasdaq. Symbol “BLSP”.
Trading estimated to start 04/07/2017. Price range: $5.50-$6.00.
While Blue Sphere seems to be a well-intended company in the environmental and waste management spaces, it is currently a penny stock. It’s looking to reprice and list on the Nasdaq.
Update 02/10/2017: Sachem Capital Corp. IPO prices at $5 per shares. First trade $4.90.
Update 02/10/2017: Sachem Capital Corp. IPO S-11/A updated today. Seeks to raise $15,000,000 in upcoming IPO. Estimated 02/10/2017.
On October 21 of 2015, Motif Investing announced that the company is entering the expanding IPO access marketplace, alongside its exclusive partner, J.P. Morgan. Ordinary individual investors are now able to invest in Motif IPOs before the newly issued stocks begin trading on the public exchanges.
Motif has joining Loyal3 in this space, a company that has been providing IPO access to individual investors since 2013. I’ve been following Loyal3 IPOs since the beginning. Check out a history of Loyal3 IPOs here, showing each company that has offered shares on the platform and the stock performance since the IPO.
Time will tell when we’ll see the first Motif IPO. If you have any additional insight, please feel free to leave comments below or contact me.

List Of Upcoming Motif Investing IPOs
From the Top
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”. I translate that to mean there’s at least one in the pipeline. Investors can invest with a minimum of $250. The cost to buy into IPOs is zero. No word in the press release on maximum investment amounts.
None of this is new as we know Loyal3 blazed this trail. But that doesn’t make me any less excited.
According to Seeking Alpha, J.P. Morgan “owns a piece” of Motif Investing. It continues to say that “Likely upcoming offerings … include Uber, Airbnb, Dropbox, and Pinterest.”
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 have had lots of success investing in IPOs already at Loyal3 and look forward to more at 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.
