XY - The Persistent Company Reg A+ shares are not currently traded on an exchange; their value is effectively set by whatever a private seller chooses to charge and a private buyer chooses to pay. This is different from a publicly traded company, or a company which has gone through an "IPO" (initial public offering). In those cases, there's a public market that actively is selling and buying the stock, so the market will reflect the value of the stock pretty easily.
In the case of our Regulation A+ XY Equity, we are not currently traded on an exchange or public market. This means the value of your shares depend on the price someone is willing to pay for them. We last sold the shares at $8 U.S. per share. That's a price rather than a value but some shareholders can use it as a guide for what they would like to charge a buyer.
You may be wondering what value your shares have if they're not traded on an exchange. Why would someone else be interested in buying them? What will you eventually get out of owning your shares?
If XY were to be sold to a larger company – as is the usual goal with startups like XY – your shares would have the same value as the shares owned by XY or any other shareholder. And all shares also have value in the form of XY's assets, which is the value of everything owned by the company, including both physical and intellectual property.
Important: It is against SEC regulations to discuss internal planning with anyone outside the company on an individual level. All shareholders must be notified publicly or simultaneously of any changes which might affect the value of their shares. XY staff will never be able to provide status updates on such changes. If you ask any questions about when, how, or whether there is an IPO, our staff will not be able to answer.
XY is not able to give financial advice of any kind – please consult your financial advisor if you have any questions or concerns about your portfolio. If you have any questions about the company, please feel free to contact us using Submit a Request above, or see our SEC filings and semi-annual reports here.
