ClickIPO Holdings Completes 3M Series Seed, Releases First Version of App for Following IPO and Secondary Offerings
The FinTech Company Aims to Optimize Retail Distribution for Public Offerings
Scottsdale, AZ, USA – October 24, 2017: ClickIPO Holdings, LLC, today announced that it has raised just over $3 Million in its Series Seed round, and has launched the first version of its public offering technology through its wholly owned subsidiary ClickIPO Securities, LLC. (“Click IPO”)
The mobile-first platform will allow individual retail investors to participate in IPOs (Initial Public Offerings) and Secondary Offerings using their existing online brokerage account. By not housing investor accounts Click IPO will be able to aggregate investors from multiple online brokerages on a larger scale, providing retail investors a turnkey solution for participating in IPOs and Secondary Offerings.
ClickIPO’s model of delivering offerings has already attracted some well-known early investors in the finance and technology industries during their Series Seed including John Ashcroft, former U.S. Attorney General and TAG Capital, E&I Ventures, Arizona Technology Investors, and Desert Angels. This capital raise will help ClickIPO expand its technology platform and begin offering access to the platform to a larger group of retail investors.
Launching its first public-facing app into Google and Apple app stores, ClickIPO will provide a centralized hub for discovering and researching IPOs. Each user is automatically entered into the Waitlist to begin participating in IPO and Secondary Offerings, with invitations to participate in offerings expected to be rolled out through Q4 of 2017. The app (in Beta testing) presently provides information and alerts on new offerings and lets users share those offerings via social media.
ClickIPO is committed to moving the public offering industry forward with the first-ever utility designed to optimize retail distribution. The platform is configured to benefit the industry as a whole – accessible to Issuers, Underwriters, Brokerage firms, and Investors. Individual Investors will use the app to easily access a prospectus, to conduct research and to invest in offerings through their existing brokerage. Online Brokerages will now have a workable solution to provide offering access for their customers. Underwriters and Issuers will get access to a liquidity pipeline designed to attract “buy-and-hold” Individual Investors.
Scott Coyle, CEO of ClickIPO Securities, added, “ClickIPO is interested in seeing a resurgence of the traditional IPO market in the US and globally, and we believe part of that solution is bringing the retail investor back to the table.”
About ClickIPO Securities
ClickIPO Securities, LLC, a registered broker-dealer, exclusively offers the mobile ClickIPO platform designed to give Individual Investors access to hundreds of IPOs and Secondary Offerings each year. It will be the first capable of aggregating many Individual Investors across multiple broker-dealers onto a single platform, where they can place conditional purchase orders for IPO and Secondary Offering shares through a first-of-its-kind app integrated with their existing brokerage accounts. Our technology gives Underwriters valuable insight into investor behavior through the data we gather and the app’s “ClickIPO Investor Score”, providing a retail distribution channel similar to dealing with institutions. Built directly into the app, our proprietary scoring system identifies “buy-and-hold” investors who demonstrate a history of buying and holding shares for 30 days or more before selling and rewards them with allocation priority and, likewise reduces the likelihood of “IPO Flippers” from receiving allocations. Brokerage firms will be able to leverage the ClickIPO platform, that will appeal to their customers who want a way to participate in the IPO and Secondary Offering market.
The ClickIPO app is currently in private testing. Its Closed Beta phase is expected to launch in late 2017. Users can join the waitlist today or download the app at www.clickipo.com. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or follow ClickIPO on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn for more information.

Risk of Investing in Initial Public Offerings (“IPOs”)
There are specific risks in investing in an Initial Public Offering (“IPO”). Among other things, the stock has not been subject to market valuation. Those risks are described at length in the prospectus, and we urge you to read the prospectus carefully to understand those risks before investing. An IPO is the first sale of stock by a private company to the public and may not be suitable for all investors. IPOs are often issued by smaller, younger companies seeking the capital to expand, but can also be done by large privately owned companies looking to become publicly traded. IPOs are a risky investment. For even experienced investors, it can be difficult to predict what the stock will do on its initial day of trading and in the near future because there is often little historical data with which to analyze the company. Also, most IPOs are of companies going through a transitory growth period, which are subject to additional uncertainty regarding their future values.
