The company has also filed a Form 1-A for a Regulation A+ offering. Legal Disclaimer: WorthPoint is "testing the waters" to gauge market demand from potential investors for an Offering under Tier II of Regulation A. No money or other consideration is being solicited, and if sent in response, it will not be accepted. No sales of securities will be made or commitment to purchase accepted until qualification of the offering statement by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Commission") and approval of any other required government or regulatory agency. An indication of interest made by a prospective investor is non-binding and involves no obligation or commitment of any kind. No offer to buy securities can be accepted and no part of the purchase price can be received without an offering statement that has been qualified by the Commission. An offering statement regarding the offering has been filed with the SEC. The preliminary offering circular that is part of that offering statement can be found here https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1450158/000114420416136462/v451131_partiiandiii.htm
Founded in 2007, WorthPoint is the world's largest online resource for identifying, researching, and valuing antiques, art, and vintage collectibles. With no true central library for price guides or research material, the information in regard to antiques, art and collectibles is out of date or difficult to find. WorthPoint is building a solution, creating a global "worth" database to provide a powerful online resource for collectors, financial professionals and service providers. This solution leverages shared interests in collectibles, their value and stories, into a dynamic multimedia community.
WorthPoint's database hosts over 300 million auction sales results with more than 500 million images collated from multiple sources, including more than 50 auction houses, such as Heritage Auctions, Pook & Pook, Leslie Hindman Auctioneers and eBay. WorthPoint enables collectors, financial professionals and service providers to gain more knowledge of the items they own or are seeking to buy or sell. In doing so, WorthPoint replaces traditional, published price guides and the need to search multiple online sources. The Company derives more than 93% of its revenues from subscriptions to its Worthopedia™ price guide, its Marks, Autographs, Patterns and Symbols ("MAPS") database and the WorthPoint Library. WorthPoint is also accessible on iOS and Android platforms, providing subscribers with mobile database access. While traditional word search is the primary search tool on the platform, the Company has introduced a beta version of visual search on MAPS.
WorthPoint provides the tools to help a user identify any "old" vintage and collectible items in a person's house, whether it is worth $5 or more than $1 million. Collectibles include fine art, antiques, coins, stamps, toys, glassware, folk art, memorabilia and thousands of other categories of items. These classes of items represent hidden value in many homes, often unknown to their owners, inheritors or even those people responsible for administering estates. Since its founding, the Company believes interest in collectibles has grown as programs such as Antiques Roadshow, Cash in the Attic and Pawn Stars have grown in popularity.
The Worthopedia™ price guide is a searchable database that provides access to sales records on more than 300 million items from online marketplaces and auction houses from around the world. Historical eBay sales data form the bulk of the data in Worthopedia™, but are declining in significance as the database grows. WorthPoint is not a marketplace nor does it sell any of the items that appear in the Worthopedia™. WorthPoint management believes that being a marketplace would conflict with its aim of being an independent source of information for its community.
The Company's MAPS database is an online resource for researching Marks, the identifying marks or impressions used by artisans and manufacturers to distinguish their wares, Autographs, and other distinctive Patterns and Symbols that are found on collectibles. WorthPoint has developed a visual recognition feature for use on computers and iOS devices that is currently in beta and will enable users to conduct searches optically. The Company plans to use a portion of the net proceeds of this Offering to enhance the feature and develop an Android version.
The WorthPoint Library contains the digital version of almost 1,000 collectibles price guides and reference books from leading publishers on a wide range of collecting topics. It offers users the ability to do the necessary research to identify and better educate themselves on a wide array of collectibles and is an additional tool for users of the Worthopedia™ database. The Company plans to use a portion of the net proceeds of the Offering to expedite the digitizing of materials for the WorthPoint Library.
