Allegiancy CEO Steve Sadler to give keynote address at Los Angeles CrowdFinancing Real Estate Conference

Sadler to share vast potential of new Regulation A with real estate leaders and investors

Los Angeles – Allegiancy CEO Steve Sadler will give the keynote speech to kick off the Los Angeles CrowdFinancing Real Estate 2015 event on July 22.

More than 200 real estate companies, brokerages, and investors will come together to hear from the experts about CrowdFinancing in real estate, including marketing and legal aspects. The event is presented by the Dynamics Capital Group and MediaShares.

Steve Sadler will give the keynote speech at 3:10 on Wed., July 22, at the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel in Los Angeles. There will be a live and recorded broadcast of the entire event. (link)

In his remarks, Sadler will explore what the new Reg A could mean for the real estate industry. Many experts, including Sadler, believe that the new Regulation A could be a catalyst for real economic growth, as well as for new investment and capital-raising opportunities benefiting investors and sponsors alike.

As part of the 2012 Jumpstart our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced the new rules for Regulation A in March. The rules increased the amount a company can raise through a public securities offering from $5 million to $50 million in a year, and allowed non-accredited investors to invest. Sadler and his firm went through the process of doing a smaller Regulation A raise under the old rules last year.

Sadler believes that the new Reg A has the potential to both democratize and revolutionize fundraising for real estate companies.

“Today, there are so many gatekeepers and intermediaries between the investor and the actual real estate that it drives up costs dramatically,” Sadler stated. “Part of what is exciting about the new Reg A is the ability for companies to gain more direct access to investors, cut some of the red tape, and deliver better investment returns. Of course, the investor gains more direct access to the sponsors and their projects as well, so everybody wins.”

Sadler added, “With new Reg A offerings expected to hit the market in September, now is the time to get up to speed. Those who can navigate the rapidly changing world stand to benefit mightily.”
