Update 02/02/2018: Interesting new Reg A+ opportunity on Motif announced today. The Aspen REIT IPO is looking to raise $33 million to buy a single property in Aspen. Here are the specifics according to the Motif website:
Aspen REIT, Inc. is a Maryland corporation that has been formed to own the St. Regis Aspen Resort in Aspen, Colorado. We are a single-asset REIT and currently intend to own only the St. Regis Aspen Resort. Therefore, an investment in our common stock is an investment in the St. Regis Aspen Resort.
These single property REITs come with more risk. This is a rare opportunity, however, to invest in a very expensive real estate market that also should earn a profit from hotel operations. Read the offering circular here.
Update 02/01/2018: Victory Capital IPO now available on Motif. Underwriting by J.P. Morgan. Scheduled to IPO on 02/08/2018. This is a $200+ million IPO.

Update 01/30/2018: Amarin Corporation spot secondary priced at $3.65. Allocations came in at 46%.
Update 01/29/2018: Amarin Corporation announced a spot secondary offering after the close today. $70 million offering should price tomorrow morning. Orders accepted through Motif until 7 am EST tomorrow. Underwriting by Cantor Fitzgerald.
Update 01/25/2018: EyeNovia IPO priced at the bottom of the range, $10. Investors reporting 100% allocation from Motif. Hoping that’s not a bad sign.
Update 01/24/2018: Looks like Motif was shut out by Goldman Sachs on the PagSeguro Digital IPO deal. Too bad, shares jumped 36%.
Hard to keep up with all these deals!
Rocket Pharmaceuticals spot secondary email sent after the close yesterday. Priced at $13.25 this morning, representing a 12.8% discount to prior close. Allocations came in at 25% of requested.
Announced this morning, Blink Charging Co. secondary offering. Small deal led by Joseph Gunnar. No pricing set yet.

Update 01/22/2018: Added two IPOs to the list today. PagSeguro Digital IPO is a Goldman Sachs-led deal. I missed this Friday because the alert email from Motif went to my spam. Check you spam/junk folders for Motif emails! This is a large deal estimated at $1.75 billion. The company is a payments solutions provider in Brazil.
Also added the small Genprex IPO led by newcomer underwriter, Network 1 Financial.
Updates 01/19/2018: Thanks to a reader suggestion, I’ve added an Allocation % column to the table below. The web page is too narrow to fit it all in one view, so you need to used the scrollbar at the bottom to see it.
This is the percent of allocation that was granted by Motif compared to what was requested. So if you requested $5,000 and received only $2,500 worth of stock, the allocation was 50%.
I was able to source some data from the archives of this page. But I need your help to fill in the blanks. If you have any records of the allocations you received vs. requested, please send me an email. Use this contact form.
Update 01/19/2018: Received some allocations from a reader. Here they are:
- Nine Energy Service – 40.46% of requested amount
- ADT – 44.42% of requested amount
Update 01/17/2018: A company called Genocea Biosciences is offered a spot secondary today for warrants on the Motif platform underwritten by Cantor Fitzgerald.
Another IPO, EyeNovia is also available today. Underwriting by Ladenburg Thalmann.
Update 01/15/2018: Motif Investing sent an email to IPO customers on 01/13 giving us some stats for the year. The text of the email is below. Note: the 25.4% number they reference below is sourced from IPO Boutique and represents all IPOs, not the just ones on Motif. The table on this page tracks the performance of each IPO since it’s opening.
Here’s the text from the email:
When we announced we were bringing you IPOs, we had one goal: to give you more access.
In 2017, Motif gave you access to more than 50 public equity deals, led by 19 different underwriters which raised a total of $4.6 billion for issuing companies. Motif customers can participate in IPOs and other equity public offerings for as little as $250.
Reflecting on the past year, the average gain was 25.4% across all IPO issues on the NYSE and NASDAQ, with two-thirds of IPOs closing the year above their IPO prices. Healthcare was the leading industry sector for IPOs in 2017, followed by technology, consumer and financial.
Heading into 2018, market analysts are forecasting a strong pipeline of deals and expect to see broad participation across industry sectors as companies take advantage of favorable market conditions to launch their offerings.

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.
