WAFU Inc. has announce that it has closed the first ever accredited investor equity crowdfunding by a Canadian company in the United States via CircleUp, a leading U.S. equity crowdfunding platform for accredited investors to invest in private consumer product companies in the United States.
“With the completion of this ground breaking U.S. equity crowdfunding round, we have not only been able to raise some of the capital that we need to continue to expand across Canada and the United States, but have also been able to attract experienced consumer packaged goods U.S. angel investors into our shareholder base who, we believe, will be invaluable in helping us to continue to grow our brand in the United States and increase the sales of our products in the U.S. through our new U.S. e-commerce site” said WAFU CEO Gil Michel-Garcia.
WAFU Inc. raised gross proceeds of approximately $230,000 through the issuance of Series A-2 Preferred Shares and/or Series A-3 Preferred Shares to a small number of “accredited investors.”
All shares issued under the private placement are subject to a four month hold period from the date of issuance in Canada and are “restricted securities” subject to certain additional transfer restrictions in the United States.
WAFU Inc. (previously Mari’s Foods Inc.) is a Canadian privately held corporation based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
