It is the Mission of the Private Placement Computer & Software Debt Market to preserve and strengthen the quality and public confidence in Alternative Debt Investments. The Private Placement Computer & Software Debt Market stands for Integrity and Ethical practices in order to enhance Investor confidence in Alternative Debt Investments, thereby contributing to the financial health of the overall economy and supporting the capital formation process. From early and developmental stage companies to operating companies of international stature, each are recognized as sharing these important traits. 

The Private Placement Computer & Software Debt Market provides a transparent and secure platform for the sale of unlisted Debt securities through weekly and monthly Blind Reverse Auctions. 

These include, but are not limited to:

  • Traditional Corporate Debt Bonds

  • Asset Backed Securities

  • Commercial Real Estate Asset Backed Securities

  • Venture Debt

  • Revenue Interest Financing

  • Royalty Based Financing

  • MRR Lines of Credit

  • Structured Financing & Convertible Securities

  • Equipment Lease & Equipment Backed Securities

  • Working Capital Lines of Credit

  • Mortgages & Deeds of Trust

A Blind Reverse Auction is a price / interest rate discovery process in which the auctioneer starts with the lowest or highest asking price / interest rate and lowers it, or raises it, until it reaches a price level where the bids received will cover the entire offer quantity. Blind Reverse Auctions are appropriate for instances where a large quantity of an item is being offered for sale, as opposed to just a single item. 

A Blind Reverse Auction can be used for a private offering and an IPO to figure out the optimum price for a stock offering. They are also used by Government Agencies for the public offering of Treasury Bills, Notes and Bonds. 

The Private Placement Computer & Software Debt Market's Blind Reverse Auction Process: In the Blind Reverse Auction process for Equities, the Underwriter does not set a price for the Agribusiness Equity Shares being sold by the Issuer (or the FINRA Broker Dealer). The Issuer (and/or the FINRA Broker Dealer) decides on the number of Equity Shares to be sold and the "asking price" per Share. 

Investors submit "price bids" and the number of shares they would like to purchase. After all shares being offered have been sold (or committed to), the Underwriter / Issuer / FINRA Broker Dealer creates a single list with the highest bid prices at the top and the lowest bid prices at the bottom. In the event that more shares are sold than are offered, the Underwriter / Issuer / FINRA Broker Dealer works down the list of the over sale starting at the highest bid price buyer and working down the list until the desired number of shares have been sold. 

EXAMPLE:

Assume that the Underwriter schedules a Blind Reverse Auction for an Issuer to price Corporate Bonds for a Company. In this scenario, let’s say the Issuer is auctioning 4,000 Five-Year Maturity Corporate Bonds, with a face value of $1,000 USD per Corporate Bond. NOTE: The below is not a realistic example and involves large differences in bid prices which is not realistic, but is being utilized here to cover multiple scenarios.
