What is a VIP Auction?

For each offering (or auction), SongVest holds a non-binding VIP ("Verify Interest of Participation") Auction with potential investors. It is referred to as a "Test The Waters" auction under Tier 2 of Regulation A of the Securities Act and the offering circular.  


To price the interests in the offering of royalty share units, SongVest facilitates a non-binding VIP or  “Test The Waters” auction with potential investors.The unique bidding process is how potential investors collectively set the final price per unit for an offering. Registered fans can start bids at a minimum of $20 per royalty share unit with no commitment to buy. 


Bidders can reserve SongShares with an option to purchase them during the official VIP Sale held after SEC qualification of the offering. During the auction, participants will bid on SongShares, until all have been reserved, and the price will increase by $1. You will need to watch your bids to confirm your priority and that you do not get outbid before the auction ends!
