Update 03/23/2017 9:00pm: Today, Motif announced its first follow-on offering – ActiveCare (ACAR) led by Joseph Gunnar & Co. LLC. It’s the first deal available on Motif Investing since Sachem.
This is the third offering on the Motif Investing platform (the first being Trivago), and the second led by Joseph Gunnar & Co. LLC.
ActiveCare is a diabetes monitoring company. Reading over the prospectus we learn this is a somewhat unconventional offering. The company is currently listed on the Nasdaq OTC (over the counter). However, it doesn’t appear to actually trade. There’s a lot to digest, and it doesn’t strike me as a worthwhile read.
On January 26th, the company announced a 500:1 reverse stock split bringing the price to $25 where it has remained. If the company is accepted onto the Nasdaq, Motif shows the pricing estimated at $5-$10.
The whole OTC marketplace is a black hole I don’t understand. What I do know is it isn’t flooded with high-quality companies. And reverse stock splits are rarely a positive sign. Evaluate this company for its business model and financials. If you would invest in such a company in your regular investing, maybe you’ll consider the follow-on.
But I don’t see any real advantage to investing in this public offering, which is what we look to earn a profit.
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.
