Presumably the value of the company goes up by the amount of this raise…

Will the rewards stay the same?

We’ll let you know when we’re coming up to the next round.

Thanks for the update Adam, sounds like it caters for everyone’s needs EIS availability, old investors wanting to get out and new investors not missing out.

Crowdcube should implement “express interest” page for June too :smile:

Do you expect the EIS confirmation from HMRC before the end of the cooling off period?

Good decision. This will give more people a chance to invest.

It’s unlikely that we’ll receive the confirmation within such a short time. We haven’t received advance assurance from HMRC yet, but we can’t see why we won’t.

We’ll update you if we do hear back from them in time.

I am clicking ‘Request Access’ on the crowdcube page, but the page just goes dim and freezes when I press the button. There’s no confirmation text or anything.

Thanks for the heads up, we’ve already raised this with Crowdcube & they’re looking into it at the moment.

Thanks for clarifying. Ultimately it probably wouldn’t impact my decision to invest, but would be good to know as soon as it is established

Please run future investment rounds when you do have the advance assurances from HMRC.

I just got an email from Crowcube saying the funding is completed and I freaked out so came here. Had a slight sense of relief with the funding returning in June, but even more so seeing the good news of there being more EIS funding available as well.

Thanks for everything you’ve done so far FT, looking forward to June and will hopefully give me a chance to put more money aside too :slight_smile:

Keep an eye on the news in the coming days. :wink: I personally never expected this much demand, and it was really overwhelming. :bowing_man:

We found the same behaviour as we were testing the page. We notified Crowdcube’s CTO about the issue!

EDIT 1: He’s investigating this bug right now.

EDIT 2: It’s fixed now.

I think this is the best decision all round. Most people that missed out won’t have long to wait and more will be eligible for eis too. Difficult decision but I think the right one. Well done all.

Can you confirm if Crowdcube gave Freetrade any form of compensation (waived fees/money etc) for what happened? Or maybe you can’t say

We definitely understand how important this is, we’ll do our best to make sure that we receive it in advance for the next round.

@alex.s can those who just invested, but have duplicates, sell to other community members for exactly the same price?
