Regulation A+ is a new law that made it legal to for the general population to invest before stocks are publicly traded.
When companies grow fast, here’s what usually happens. Wealthy people tend to invest early on. You know they’re wealthy because the law requires a net worth of $1,000,000 or salary of $200,000 to be an accredited investor.
Then the company grows until it goes public and stock starts being publicly traded. So everyone else gets to invest when growth has slowed way down. That’s why the wealthy early investors make much more than the less-wealthy later investors.
So any time a Facebook or Google comes along, the people who get rich are the investors who were already rich to begin with, since it's so hard for the everyman to invest in fast-growing companies. (Note: we make no claim to being the next Facebook or Google.)
But with Regulation A+, you don’t need to be rich to invest. You just need to commit to not invest more than 10% of your annual income or net worth, whichever is greater. Now the rest of us get to invest in early-stage startups. Good luck!
You may invest as many times as you would like until you reach any of the following limits: 10% of your income, the $25,000 limit, or we reach the cap on the amount of investments we can accept.
We currently accept all major credit cards for investments up to $5,000. Due to the high fees associated with credit card transactions, we require ACH or Wire Transfers for purchases over $5,000.
No law limits the minimum amount of money you can invest as an individual, but transaction costs related to the purchase of the stock and ongoing maintenance, make accepting investments less than $150 unreasonable. In fact, most Regulation A+ offerings will typically limit investments at $1,000. We wanted to ensure that anybody who wanted to invest in VidAngel would have the opportunity regardless of how large, or small, their investment was.
Many institutional investors have asked to invest in VidAngel. Some of these investors could fill the entire investment on their own. To provide as many customers as possible the opportunity to invest, we limited the number of shares that any single investor could purchase.
Our ability to offer our shares to the public is possible due to recent legislation known as the Jobs Act. This same law limits the amount that non-accredited investors can purchase to the greater of 10% of your annual revenue or net worth.
Yes, we are happy to accept ACH transactions. We currently integrate with Stripe and Plaid to accept ACH transaction information for any investment amount. If you are not comfortable using a third-party service, we can take traditional ACH information directly through VidAngel as well
Yes, we will accept wire transfers for investments in excess of $1,000.
Yes, as long as they are a VidAngel customer. We are notifying those who expressed interest back in May, first. Once they have had sufficient time to secure their investment, we will notify everyone who has donated to our litigation defense fund. If there are any shares left, we will notify the rest of our customers. We are not offering stock to non-customers at this time. All investments are on a first come, first serve, basis.
No. Investment in early-stage companies like VidAngel is extremely risky, and you should consult with your independent financial advisor before making a decision on whether you want to invest. In any case, you should never invest more than you could afford to lose!
Due to the additional step required to verify your status as an accredited investor, you will need to make your investment directly with our transfer agent, Issuer Direct. Please keep in mind that we are limiting the amount of stock that you can purchase to $25,000. In most cases, this means that you do not need to claim your status as an accredited investor to invest the maximum amount.
You may purchase VidAngel stock using any ownership structure currently available for investment in your state. Initially we will collect the basic information to secure your spot in line. Specific information related to the ownership structure will be collected at a later time.
VidAngel cannot take revenue on a sale until the transaction is complete, and the sellback price is determined. Specifics around how we recognize revenue are included in the Offering Circular, under the section titled Management’s Discussion & Analysis, and in our audited financials.

No, we are not using commissioned sales agents, or underwriters in the offering of our shares to the public. Doing so introduces additional costs into the process that reduce the overall value of your investment. We will use our existing website, www.vidangel.com, to provide notification of the offering. We will also furnish all prospective investors with a copy of the offering circular by making it available for download at www.vidangel.com/invest. Our website and Issuer Direct will be the exclusive means by with prospective investors may subscribe to this offering (“subscribe” means to purchase shares).
You will be able to track your shares or order a stock certificate from our transfer agent (Issuer Direct). Once your investment is confirmed, you will receive an email with instructions on how to access your shares on Issuer Direct’s website.
As part of Regulation A+, we are required to file financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission on a semi-annual basis. We will also send out regular investor updates via email to let you know all the latest news of the company.
Initially, your shares will not be listed on a stock exchange, and selling them will be difficult. Over time, VidAngel will consider if it makes sense to list our shares on a public exchange.
In the event of an acquisition, you will receive compensation for your shares when the transaction closes.
Investments will be on a first come, first serve basis. We cannot guarantee that there will be opportunities to purchase additional shares in the future.
A holder of stock (shareholder) has a claim to a part of the corporation’s assets and earnings. In other words, a shareholder is part owner of a company. Ownership is determined by the number of shares a person owns relative to the total number of shares outstanding.
