The Funding

The Vineyard Group invests in and structures two primary processes for funding through an Alternative Public Offering (APO) -  The Reverse Merger or the Self-Registration (Organic).

 

In a Reverse Merger, your company merges with our publicly listed shell company

whereby your shareholders become the majority and controlling shareholders of the publicly held company. Prior to or concurrent with the completion of the Merger, The Vineyard Group completes a Private Placement of Capital (PIPE) to meet your funding needs.

In an Organic APO, The Vineyard Group will invest in and create your newly listed public company through an S-1 registration with the SEC.   Following the creation of the public company, the Vineyard Group completes a private placement of capital (PIPE) to meet your funding needs.
