In the April edition of GOIR, four highly promising companies launched advance private placement allocations of their unique project offerings to over 400 qualified investors, fund managers and financial institutions who attended the event from around the world.
The following four companies/projects presented at the first GOIR event:
American Pacific Bancorp – a US bank holding company with a proven track record and bank roll-up strategy, has structured a very special pre-IPO offer with great discount and immediate interest income from investment. President and CEO, Mr Frank D. Heuszel commented that “this online roadshow is a historical event, setting a new path for the future of private placement, and is ideal for us to make a very special offering available to a unique group of investors globally.”
Crown LNG / Asia First Holding – a highly experienced management team with some of the best engineering resources, is building an LGN (liquefied natural gas) regasification terminal to fulfil its 30 years’ supply contract to a licensed LNG operation company in India (which currently has huge supply shortage on LGN). Chairman & Co-founder, Mr Jorn Husemoen, said “Crown LNG and Coinstreet launched an exclusive Securitized Token Offering (STO) for our project. We are very impressed by the reach of the GOIR, the organizer and the partner network. The format of this roadshow works well to access investors all over the world.”
ARK – a subsidiary of Thailand listed company Cho Thavee PLC, ARK is the largest private bus operator using a combination of data business and STO (Security Token Offering) model for transforming public transportation business in Thailand. President & CEO of Cho Thavee / Co-Founder & Executive Chairman of ARK, Mr Suradech Taweesaengsakulthai, said “it is astonishing how much our team in Asia can achieve online together in this global roadshow without travelling. This global roadshow has pioneered the new normal business environment for accredited investors and institutions to evaluate our project with immediate access to various information and the team.”
Broadline Capital (Investment in Cytonus) – Cytonus Therapeutics, a US biotech company run by a “star team” with amazing track records in the industry, is developing a ground-breaking targeted medicine delivery technology – the proprietary Cargocyte platform – with proven applications in vaccine and therapeutic solutions for COVID-19.

New Opportunities Emerge from Global Crisis
Mr Richard Rappaport, Chairman & CEO of Westpark Capital, a strategic partner of Coinstreet, commented that “under the current environment, online roadshows will be a key way for doing private placements moving forward. This could be a good alternative for fundraising for private companies from the Series-A onward to pre-IPO.”
“We are in the midst of a global crisis now, where assuring the safety of everyone is of utmost importance,” said Samson Lee, Founder & CEO of Coinstreet. “In Chinese, the word “CRISIS” is comprised of two characters “Wei” and “Ji”, representing “danger” and “opportunity” respectively. Many investors are frustrated as the current environment creates certain obstacles to meeting with entrepreneurs as well as vetting various investment opportunities. Coinstreet has taken an active role in this market crisis by bringing great deals to investors’ doorsteps through GOIR in order to capture a bigger audience and broaden market coverage.”
