In the case of an STO, a company issues itself or via an STO exchange own tokens instead of own shares (IPO) or a stake (VC). Interested investors can then buy these and usually pay with a crypto currency (Bitcoin, Ethers, etc.). The technical processing and booking on the account (wallet) of the investor is using the blockchain technology. That is why we speak of a "digital share".
It is advisable to conduct an STO/ETO with an STO exchange, which not only helps with the issue, but also enables a regular, transparent and cost-effective secondary trading for the token. In addition, such crypto exchanges have established access to interested investors worldwide, making the placement of coins faster and more successful.
The money raised flows directly to the company and can be used for the planned future and growth investments. There are some variations of tokens (sometimes as equity). Security token allow a kind of dividend payments and sometimes also voting rights. In contrast to crowdfunding, which is often realized via a subordinated loan, which therefore has to be repaid, the STO capital is available to the company over the long term.
In addition to speculators, the current STO/ETO investors also include more serious investors, family offuices and, increasingly, institutional fund managers. They either receive certain benefits, such as a profit-based dividend, or also an additional payment in the case of any exit, if the company will be sold in the future.
Especially instititional investors are interested in dividends and in rising prices of the token, if the company's investments realize the expected positive results. Trading on an STO exchange now makes it possible to realize these gains.
Our article about: How do ICOs become an accepted asset class? can you find here.
The issuance of token (STO/ETO) requires documents and information about the company/project.
- meaningful website with part for STO investors
- videos and photos to explain the desired projects
- product brochures etc.
- 'White Paper':
This is a kind of business plan with details about the company, the
current business, the future project, its financing and the
expected business development.
- possibly more 'Papers' about the technology, patents, legal
- for security token an approved prospectus is neccessary
- token sale sheet, i. e. details about the number of coins, the timing
of the issue and the rights of the buyer etc.
The preparation of this company information should be possible within four or five months. Many of these documents can also be used by the company for other purposes, such as loans, M&A, marketing, and so on.
However, despite the partly small amount of documentation, the preparations required a special knowledge for the issue itself, as well as for the subsequent permanent investor relation.
IR CONSULT can carry out a kind of capital market maturity test (www.boersenreif.com) about the STO/ETO-candidate before the company spend further funds on the preparation of the intended STO.

An STO/ETO candidate benefits from our specialist knowledge as well as our international investor network, which has been established over the last 25 years.
The whole STO project can therefore be implemented even quicker and faster, its placement opportunities increase and the management has enough time for its operational business, the actual basis for the STO.
