Exodus Public Offering Raises $75 Million
Offering Attracted Over 6,800 New Investors, Highlighting the Democratization of the Financial System
OMAHA, Neb., May 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Exodus Movement, Inc. (Exodus Wallet: EXIT), a Delaware corporation that has developed a leading non-custodial cryptocurrency software platform, closed its offering of Class A common stock under Regulation A on May 5, 2021.
The full amount that had qualified under the company’s offering circular, 2,733,229 shares, was purchased by investors. The offering resulted in demand from both institutional and retail investors and significantly expanded the ownership base through the addition of over 6,800 new shareholders.
The company expects to use the proceeds from the offering for the continued expansion of its platform, with a focus on software development and increasing its marketing efforts to attract additional customers to its platform.
JP Richardson, co-founder and CEO Exodus, said: “Given the novel approach to fundraising, our utilization of blockchain technology and all the challenges faced, we were blown away by the response. There’s a lot of excitement and gratitude around the company to be joined by 6,800+ new stakeholders in our mission. This offering reinforces our core belief that if you democratize financial systems and make finance easy, people will participate and benefit from opportunities traditionally available to only the wealthy elite. Retail investors who bought a couple shares got the exact same deal as billionaires. That felt pretty cool and true to the spirit of blockchain and the crypto community.
“Looking ahead, we are focused on enabling secondary trading and accommodating investors located outside of the United States. We will remain steadfast in our mission to continually expand and evolve Exodus to offer customers more capabilities. Additionally, we are excited about the opportunity to replicate this fundraising model to enable like-minded companies to also enter the public markets in this democratized fashion. We expect these strategies will drive long-term stakeholder value.”

Prior to the availability of any secondary market trading, EXIT shares will remain priced at $27.42 and will be visible in your Exodus wallet like any other digital asset in your portfolio.
