Investor Update: Cap Table After Token Swap

CNG
January 8, 2021

Dear Change investors and customers welcome to 2021. We hope you’ve spent a decent amount of time with your family and friends during the holidays. We know this has been a challenge this year, due to the lockdowns and of course the crazy upwards spike we experienced in cryptocurrency markets.

Last year was one of the most interesting years for Change as a company. You’re part of a company that has grown a lot. We’re currently making similar revenue and trading volume in a day as we used to make in a month at the start of 2020. 

Part of growing up is change and these more technical and less intriguing updates, compared to Bitcoin price movements, are exactly what a Change user needs.

Change Group capitalization table

On 31.12.2020 the conversion from CAG to CNG ended. This means we can now conclude the total number of shares allocated to CNG holders and the final capitalization table.

To give a simple overview of who owns what and how much, we have put together this table for you. If you’re completely new to capitalization tables, then we suggest you check out an explanation from Investopedia as well. Essentially, a capitalization table shows the structure of the company’s current equity.

Ownership Nominal value
Team and team options 59% EUR 12,978
Own shares that will belong to Change Group OÜ 31.4% EUR 6,905
CNG investors 8.6% EUR 1,893
Funderbeam investors 1% EUR 219

Plans for future fundraising

Change is a crowdfunded startup. If any company is going to be owned and governed not only by the company’s team but also by its customers then it’s probably going to be an investment app like Change.

Listing shares on Funderbeam definitely marks a big milestone in our journey. Here’s a brief update of future fundraising activities on Funderbeam and in the Change app.

Since the company will own 31.4% of its own shares, future fundraising will be carried out by selling these shares and therefore without dilution of current shareholdings.

When Change shares first got listed on Funderbeam, Kristjan Kangro (Change team member, CEO, and founder) liquidated 1% (EUR 303,683.10) from his own stake to create market liquidity on Funderbeam. From the net proceeds from selling 0.5% (after taxes) he voluntarily acquired back 0.5% share equivalent by acquiring CNG in the Change app. This is a strong indication that management believes the journey is just in the beginning.

Additional 1.5% share units were transferred by Kristjan Kangro to Funderbeam, from which 0.5% were on offer at the price of EUR 3.69. The sell orders will be canceled as the company now owns its own shares that can be used for direct fundraising. There is currently no plan to list additional share units on Funderbeam.
