Trust Stamp CEO Gareth N. Genner comments:Trust Stamp’s unique proposition of privacy-first, secure, and accessible biometric and digital identity solutions continues to be validated with the support of both new and returning Shareholders, strategic international partnerships, and cross-industry demand for our scaling portfolio of transformative identity, data protection, and fraud-prevention capabilities.

The funds raised during 2021 position Trust Stamp to capitalize on global market opportunities by strengthening market penetration and further developing and commercializing innovative IP to address emerging needs of consumers and organizations in our increasingly digitally connected world.

We are thrilled to continue this growth trajectory alongside our expanding base of mission-aligned Shareholders as the key drivers for our planned uplisting to the Nasdaq Capital Market.”

Details of the Offerings

The fundraise commenced on 25 August 2021, initially targeting a maximum raise of $5M. With a central goal of raising capital to support Shareholders’ equity requirements for Trust Stamp’s April 2021 application to list on the Nasdaq Capital Market, Trust Stamp’s Board later approved an increase in the maximum raise to $6.2M following consultation with Nasdaq staff.

Each share issued in this round of funding is paired with a warrant to purchase an additional share for US $4, with a subscription price per share and warrant unit of US $4. The Regulation CF offering maintained a minimum investment of $1,000. While the Regulation D and Regulation S offerings initially featured a minimum investment size of US $5,000, Trust Stamp lowered the minimum investment to US $1,000 as a result of increased investor interest.

One of the Company’s earliest investors, Second Century Ventures LLC (“SCV”), together with REach® Ventures LLC (“REach®”), an SCV company, respectively exercised 2,037,560 and 400,641 warrants initially issued on 30 September 2016, totaling US $3.32M raised and 2,438,201 New Shares issued from the execution of warrants. Following these transactions, SCV and REach® hold 2,622,995 and 932,110 outstanding warrants, respectively.

The transactions concerning the 3,816,967 New Shares are exempt from the registration requirements set out under the US Securities Act of 1933 (“The Act”). Of that, 1,106,673 New Shares have been sold to US-based and international investors pursuant to Regulation CF under The Act, 2,652,940 New Shares have been sold to US-based accredited investors pursuant to Regulation D under The Act, and 57,354 New Shares have been sold in an offshore transaction as defined in and pursuant to Regulation S under The Act.

Following the completion of all transactions, the Company will have 23,215,662 Class A Common Stock (“Common Shares”) in issue.
