TriPoint Global Equities/BANQ® Is Accepting Reg A+ Issuers

Reg A+ Is in Effect

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 19, 2015) - TriPoint Global Equities, LLC. ("TriPoint"), a FINRA member and leading boutique investment bank that provides companies with capital raising and corporate & strategic advisory services, today announced that with the effectiveness of Reg A+ as of June 19, 2015, it electronic platform BANQ® (www.BANQ.co) is now accepting issuers looking to raise capital. Potential issuers should contact TriPoint at sales@tpglobal.com.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) recently approved the final rules to activate implementation of Regulation A+ which is Title IV of the Jumpstart our Business Startups Act, or JOBS Act. The approval of Regulation A+ allows startups and small businesses to raise a maximum of $50 million under this law. The newly approved Regulation A+ allows these funds, subject to certain limitations, to be raised from the general public. This means that startups and small businesses can now accept investment in small Initial Public Offerings from the general public, even if the investors are not accredited.

TriPoint's new online investment banking division, BANQ® (www.BANQ.co), aims to provide individual investors with direct access to the primary and secondary equity markets. BANQ®'s platform takes the entire public and private offering process online and provides instantaneous confirmation of all investment transactions. BANQ® offers access to registered public offerings, such as IPOs and secondary offerings, private placements and now Reg A+ transactions. In addition, BANQ® offers low-priced trading commissions, as low as $0.99 and $3.95 per trade. By charging a low commission, BANQ® is making investing even more accessible to the growing number of individual investors.

"Reg A+ potentially is the greatest innovation in capital raising since Reg D itself in early 1980s. It allows a company to raise money and create immediate liquidity for its shareholders and now thru BANQ®, issuers have a platform to reach the investing community," stated Mark Elenowitz, CEO of TriPoint Global Equities. "We are excited about Reg A+ and look forward to seeing the Small Cap IPO return."

TriPoint, along with the OTC Markets Group Inc. (OTCQX: OTCM), operator of Open, Transparent and Connected financial marketplaces for 10,000 U.S. and global securities, will host a webinar providing an overview of Reg A+ on June 23, 2015 at 2 pm.
