Legion M Entertainment

Overview


FANS OF THE WORLD, UNITE!


We founded Legion M because we saw a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create an entertainment company OWNED by fans.

 

Why? Because no matter where you sit in the value chain, a built-in audience can be one of the most valuable assets in entertainment. By uniting fans as shareholders, we’re attempting to create a company with a built-in audience for every project it makes.



Legion M’s logo is the Roman numeral for 1 million. That's because our long-term goal is to unite 1 million fans as shareholders of the company. Our mission is to create a massive grassroots audience — a Legion of fans — that we believe could make Legion M one of the most influential companies in Hollywood.



TEAM


Emmy-Winning Digital Pioneers

Co-founders Paul Scanlan and Jeff Annison are Emmy-winning serial entrepreneurs and digital pioneers. In 1999, the duo (along with one other cofounder) started MobiTV, the first company in the U.S. to launch live streaming television on mobile phones. From 2003 to 2009, the trio grew the company into a worldwide leader in streaming media with 300+ employees, more than $100 million of VC investment, and an Emmy Award for innovation in television. 


In addition, Legion M has attracted a top-tier advisory board that includes legendary actor William Shatner, billion-dollar producer Dean Devlin, author/entrepreneur Eric Ries (author of “The Lean Startup"), and current/former executives from Netflix, Sony, Lucasfilm, Epic Games, and MGM.


Traction


HOW WE MAKE MONEY

Like many early stage companies, Legion M is not focused on short-term revenue, but on building what we believe will become long-term competitive advantages for the company. We're willing to sacrifice short-term revenue for long-term strategic gain because we know the bets we make as a Legion of 35,000 pale in comparison to the bets we'll be able to make as a Legion of 1,000,000.


That said, Legion M has already demonstrated an ability to generate revenue from a diverse array of both traditional and non-traditional revenue streams, including:




Note: This chart shows revenue as reported in our audited financial statements. For complete results and management’s discussion and analysis, please see our SEC filings. Past financial performance is not an indication of future financial performance. 


Since Legion M was founded in 2016, the company has successfully closed 8 rounds of fundraising and built one of the largest shareholder communities in JOBS Act history. 



  1. Legion M's share price is not set on an open market the same way a publicly traded stock is. Instead, the company sets the stock price, and the public decides whether or not they would like to buy it.
  2. In January of 2022, Legion M shareholders voted to pass a 10-for-1 stock split. The prices listed on this table are presented on a post-split basis.
  3. Beginning in Round 7, Legion M’s offerings included the opportunity to receive bonus shares as a reward, which changes the effective share price paid by the investor.

PROJECTS


Invest in a Diversified Slate of Projects

Since Legion M was founded in 2016, we’ve developed a slate of projects diversified across genre, medium, business model, and risk profile. We’ve demonstrated an ability to work with top tier partners, from billion-dollar producers like Dean Devlin (Independence Day, Stargate, Leverage, The Librarians) and Michael Uslan (Batman, The Dark Knight, Joker) to renowned creators like Stan Lee (creator of the Marvel Universe) and Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma, Mallrats) and top-shelf distribution partners including NEON (Parasite, I Tonya), Bleecker Street (The Assistant, Beasts of No Nation), Searchlight (JoJo Rabbit, The Shape of Water), SpectreVision (No Man of God, Color out of Space) and Nederlander Worldwide Productions (Hamilton, Wicked, The Lion King).


the problem


Entertainment is a “hit-driven business” 

Entertainment can be extremely lucrative, but is also unpredictable. Consumer trends, technologies, and distribution models are constantly changing. Movies and TV shows are expensive bets, with budgets that can reach the tens or hundreds of millions of dollars. Every project has potential to be a breakout hit...but even the biggest names in the business sometimes strike out.


How can you improve your odds of success?


the solution


Harnessing the Power of Fans

While technologies and trends will come and go, there’s been one constant in entertainment since the earliest days of silent film: the importance of the audience. It's the audience (or lack thereof) that determines success or failure, and the audience that’s responsible for every penny in ticket sales, subscription fees, and advertising revenue.



That's why a company owned by fans is such a powerful idea. When we pool our collective power, we have potential to:


  • Fill theaters opening night
  • Negotiate better terms
  • Attract the best talent
  • Harness the "wisdom of the crowd" to make decisions
  • Find the next big thing
  • Reduce downside risk
  • Increase the chance of creating a hit

We believe that by harnessing the power of fans, Legion M can create sustainable long-term competitive advantages that could potentially make Legion M one of the most influential companies in Hollywood.


Opening the gates of hollywood


HAVING FUN = GOOD BUSINESS

Most companies view investors simply as a source of capital. For Legion M, they are the foundation of our business. We are a community as well as a corporation, and our job is to create value for this community with things like:

  • Invitations to red carpet premieres
  • Set visits
  • Roles as extras in our films
  • Special events (e.g. Stan Lee Handprint Ceremony, Saturn Awards, etc.)
  • Opening weekend meetups for movie releases
  • Online Q&As with actors, directors, and other Hollywood insiders
  • Special investor-only offers, discounts, and invitations
  • Lounges at events like Comic Con and Sundance Film Festival
  • FILM SCOUT app and Elite Scout Program
  • Inclusion in the Legion M production credit 



The wonderful thing about a fan-owned company is that financial ROI and fun are not necessarily mutually exclusive. The more engaged and excited our audience is, the more buzz and value we can create for the project, which in turn increases the project’s chances of success to the benefit of the company and all its shareholders.

Limited Availability New Perk - Get your name in the credits of a Simon Pegg/Minnie Driver/Christopher Lloyd Movie!

Simon Pegg on the Set of ‘Nandor Fodor and the Talking Mongoose’

NEW ROUND 9 PERK: GET YOUR NAME IN THE CREDITS!

Legion M is proud to be an Executive Producer of Simon Pegg's upcoming movie Nandor Fodor and the Talking Mongoose. To celebrate, we've secured a limited opportunity for some of our Round 9 investors to have their names included as a “Special Thanks” in the credits!

Any Round 9 investment qualifies, meaning that for as little as $40 you can get stock in Legion M and have your name (or the name of a loved one) immortalized in the credits of a film featuring Simon Pegg, Minnie Driver, Christopher Lloyd and Ruth Connell. You’ll even get a code for a Fandango ticket to see the film (or another Legion M release) in theaters!

Note ALL round 9 investments – including those made prior to this announcement – are eligible for this offer. However the number of credits available are limited, and will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis.


CREDITS ARE NOT GIVEN AUTOMATICALLY. AFTER MAKING YOUR INVESTMENT YOU MUST MUST FOLLOW THE STEPS LISTED AT https://legionm.com/credits TO RECEIVE A CREDIT.


NOTE TO EXISTING INVESTORS

Whenever we announce a new perk like this, we frequently get questions like “What about investors from the previous rounds? How come we don’t get a credit?”

This is a fair question, and the answer is simple:

We believe the BEST POSSIBLE THING Legion M can do for our existing investors is find creative ways to bring NEW investors into the Legion. Remember – this isn’t a Kickstarter where your upside is the perks – it’s an investment where your upside is real money. If you invested $100 into the company, our goal is to turn that into more than $100. Hopefully a lot more. And we believe the single best way we can do that is to increase the size of our community. 

Our goal isn’t to be a community of 35,000 shareholders that gets cool perks – we’re fighting to become a community of 1,000,000 with the power to shape the future of film and television.

All that being said, we recognize that these perks are really cool, and we don’t want to exclude investors from earlier rounds. That’s part of the reason we worked so hard to lower the minimum investment for Round 9 to just $40, which is the lowest minimum for any company in the history of StartEngine or Wefunder. We’ve made Legion M as accessible as possible for previous investors who want to participate in the amazing perks we’ve put together for Round 9.

Hopefully this explains our reasoning in creating our rewards program. If you have any feedback, feel free to drop us a line at team@legionm.com.

BREAKING NEWS: Neil Gaiman to voice 'Gef' in "Nandor Fodor and the Talking Mongoose"

The news broke today on Deadline that Neil Gaiman, the Hugo award-winning author whose books and graphic novels have been adapted into series including Good Omens (Amazon), Sandman (Netflix), and American Gods (Starz), has been cast as the voice of “Gef” the talking mongoose in the upcoming Simon Pegg film, Nandor Fodor and the Talking Mongoose that Legion M is involved with as an equity investor and Executive Producer.

The article quotes Nandor co-producer (and Legion M collaborator) Clare King to say: "Neil is one-of-a-kind and his creativity is unlimited. This is such an integral part to the film and we truly needed somebody who could bring an impactful and effective energy to the voice of the mongoose. It’s been such a fun time getting Neil involved and we’re so excited for the moment audiences hear his take on the fabled mongoose, Gef."

I first read about Gef, the mysterious talking mongoose when I was at school, in a book of true-life ghost stories. I never thought I'd find myself narrating a film about his exploits, or indeed, providing his voice. But the chance to work with old friends like Simon Pegg and Minnie Driver was irresistible, and I hope very much I have managed to do the mysterious mongoose justice. - NEIL GAIMAN


We’re thrilled to welcome Neil aboard this epic dark comedy and we can’t wait for you to see it in 2023!

New Project Announcement - Tobor: Family Destroyer

The year is 2023. 

An assassin robot is sent to neutralize the future leader of the human resistance (a teenage girl living in suburban New Jersey), and systematically destroys her life...

...by dating her mom.



Legion M is excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Eric Paperth and Tyler March of Tiny Little Cartoons to bring you an animated series unlike any other: Tobor: Family Destroyer. Tobor explores the emotional tug of war that happens when your single parent suddenly isn't so single. In many cases, when an outsider joins your family, it can feel like they're trying to destroy it. This show is an exercise in working out those interpersonal issues through cartoons, and it's for all the people whose families aren't so perfect.


Tobor: Family Destroyer was created by Eric Paperth and Tyler March of Tiny Little Cartoons. Their visual style and comedic voice is highlighted through multiple Channel 101 primetime shows, and content they've written and produced for FOX's AOK, Cartuna, TruTV, Bleacher Report, and more. Their most recent short, Sucks To Be The Moon, premiered at Fantastic Fest 2022.

Legion M is attached to produce the animated series, and expects to begin pitching to buyers in the next several months.

For more information, check out the project page for Tobor: Family Destroyer.

Congratulations to the Equity Crowdfunding Awards FOUNDERS OF THE YEAR!

Legion M won an award! Congratulations to our fearless co-founders Jeff Annison & Paul Scanlan who won “Founders of the Year” at the Kingscrowd Equity Crowdfunding Awards in LA this past week.

As a company that's been innovating in equity crowdfunding since the very beginning (we launched one of the very first Reg CF offerings in history the morning of May 16, 2016 -- the day the new law went into effect), it's nice to be recognized. And after 7 years of fighting in the trenches to open the gates of Hollywood, it's nice to know we've still got it!

Thank you to everyone who's made this journey possible by coming along for the ride. We can't wait to see where it goes...as far as we're concerned, they ain't seen nothing yet!

Onward and Upward!

First Closing Update - What to do if Your Investment Was Cancelled

Round 9 is open and StartEngine is in the process of completing our first rolling close, allowing us to onboard nearly 2,000 Round 9 shareholders into the company. For those that are new, WELCOME TO THE LEGION! For returning investors, thank you again for your vote of confidence -- it means a lot to us when those who know us best decide to double down.

Unfortunately, while going through the closing process, nearly 100 investors had their investments cancelled by StartEngine. If your investment was cancelled, somebody from the StartEngine team should be reaching out with more information. There was initially an automatic email sent out to some investors telling them that Legion M had decided to cancel their investment, but that is not the case -- in most cases the investments were cancelled due to incomplete answers to the "suitability questionnaires" StartEngine requires every investor to complete. If this is the case, you are welcome to resubmit your investment, but please be sure to finish the questionnaire. 

In case you are wondering, your answers to the questions on the "suitability questionnaires" are completely confidential. They are not even shared with Legion M. The questionnaires are an investor protection measure -- as the broker of our Round 9 offering, StartEngine is required by the SEC & FINRA to ensure that investors understand the risks of investing in a startup like Legion M. 

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to StartEngine at contact@startengine.com or Legion M at team@legionm.com and we'll be happy to get you sorted out. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused for the investors who were affected. 

Onward and Upward!

Results of Survey on Terms for Round 9.

Prior to the opening of Round 9 we released a poll that gave our community a preview of the proposed terms, and a chance to provide their feedback. Now that Round 9 is open, we thought it might be interesting to share some of the results from that survey. 

As of this writing, we've had over 3,400 responses, primarily coming from existing investors in Legion M.

 

 

We asked respondents to rate the progress Legion M has made since Round 8 opened on a scale of 1 (the company is underperforming compared to my expectations) to 5 (the company is killing it!). The results can be seen in the chart below:

 

 

We asked people to rate different aspects of our proposed Round 9 terms on a scale of 1 to 5. Here's how they rank below, with numbers showing the % of people who rated them positively (4 or 5) vs. negatively (1 or 2).

  • $40 Minimum investment (78% positive, 5% negative)

  • Free Movie Ticket with every investment (68% positive, 10% negative)

  • Free Legion M Gift Card with investments over $100 (70% positive, 6% negative)

  • Bonus Shares for investments $250 and up (79% positive, 5% negative)

  • Bonus Shares for existing Legion M investors (91% positive, 2% negative)

 

We asked people what they thought of the proposed share price of $1.65 per share (post split):

 

Finally, when asked about liquidity, most of our shareholders expressed a great deal of patience. Only 33 (out of more than 2,400 who answered the question) told us that they would sell their shares right now if they could. 

 

 

As with all data, this should be taken with a grain of salt. Overall the feedback was very positive, and the fact that so many of our shareholders took the time to fill out a survey like this is promising. That said, surveys like this don't capture data from many important audiences, including current investors that aren't receiving our emails, or are not interested in taking surveys. It also doesn't capture the sentiment of one of the most important audiences of all -- new investors we're hoping to bring into the Legion in Round 9.

That said, this sort of feedback was very helpful in the complicated but critical task of finalizing terms for Round 9. We know that for Legion M to succeed we must balance the interests of our existing shareholders -- the ones responsible for where we are today -- with the interests of the new investors needed to get us where we need to go tomorrow. Our goal is to provide terms that are attractive to the large investors who will pore over our financial data as well as all the small or first-time investors who invest $40 on a whim. Ultimately, we need to do whatever gives us the best chance of achieving our goal of 1MM shareholders, and a building company with an ability to help shape the future of Hollywood!

10.28.22

Bonus Shares for Existing Investors

The journey of a startup can be long and treacherous, and requires a great deal of patience from all involved. We're shooting for the stars with Legion M, and are humbled and thankful to have so many investors at our side.

As you are probably aware, Round 9 is officially open. While there is no requirement or expectation that our existing investors will invest in subsequent rounds, we know from experience that many want to. As a special thank you for those that do, we've added a reward that gives existing investors an additional 5% Bonus Shares IN ADDITION TO any other rewards available.

Note that we offered the same bonus in Round 8, but due to the pre-split price (and the fact that we can't issue fractional shares), the only way to benefit was to invest at least $300. Thanks to the stock split, in Round 9 you can benefit from the "Existing Investor Bonus" for an investment as low as $40.

To claim the Investor Bonus you must make your new investment using the same email address that is associated with your current investment being held on the KoreConX platform (which is the same one you used when you made the original investment – if you have any trouble please email team@legionm.com for assistance). Once you are logged into StartEngine with that email address, the discount will automatically appear on the checkout screen:


The Legion M Investor Bonus will show up during checkout ONLY if you are logged into an account that is using the same email address as your previous investment.

If you have any questions or troubles, please don’t hesitate to reach out to team@legionm.com and Brandi will be happy to help get you sorted out. Otherwise, THANK YOU again for being a part of Legion M.

Onward and Upward,

-Legion M Team

Reflecting On 1 Year With William Shatner

What does Bill think about Legion M? We asked him...

ROUND 9 IS NOW OPEN!

So…what’s it like working with Captain Kirk?

One year ago, William Shatner joined our advisory board. At the time we didn't know what to expect. Bill’s a cultural icon, but what would he be like as an advisor? What’s it like to work with Captain Kirk?

After 12 months of working closely with Bill on a number of projects, we've been absolutely blown away. To start with, he's a 91 year old man who works as hard (or harder) than anyone in the business. He's early for every call, and busier than he's ever been. He's sharp as a tack and one of the most “present” people we’ve ever met (when you are talking, he is always listening, thinking, and questioning). He's thoughtful, curious, and passionate.

Most of all, he's driven with an urgency to move forward. You might think that someone with a lifetime as rich as his would be content reflecting on the past, but Bill is relentlessly focused on the future. He's less likely to be talking about what happened 10 years ago than what could be happening 10 years from now. And he’s committed to using the time he has left – every last second – to make as large an impact as possible on the world. 

In the op-ed that was published shortly after we announced our agreement, Bill says:

After returning from space, what excites me most about [Legion M] is their mission to UNITE. We live in an age when so many things are pulling us apart. Our politics, our media, and our technology are all optimized to exploit our differences. But when you look down from 300,000 feet, all that falls away. What remains is an appreciation of the word "humankind", and fierce desire to work towards a future defined by things that bring us together instead of those that tear us apart.

Those are not empty words. We’ve seen firsthand the passion and energy Bill brings to the causes he cares most about. 

We’ve got one project we’ve already announced with Bill (a biographical documentary that will be financed and owned by fans), and another that is gestating which we hope to be able to talk about soon. In the meantime, we’re thrilled and honored to be working with someone whose passions and energies align so well with our own. We just hope we can keep up.


Onward and Upward!

-The Legion M Team


ROUND 9 IS NOW OPEN!

If you are considering investing in Round 9, you should know that startup investments like Legion M are speculative, illiquid and involve a high degree of risk. Statistically, most startups fail -- and when that happens investors can lose their entire investment. You should never invest more than you can afford to lose.

But if you can afford to risk at least $40 and want to swing for the fences, every great disruption starts with those willing to take a chance on something new. With risk comes potential for reward, and fortune favors the bold.

ROUND 9 IS NOW OPEN. WHAT'S CHANGED SINCE ROUND 8?

ROUND 9 IS NOW OPEN.

WHAT'S CHANGED SINCE ROUND 8?


Yesterday we were delighted to announce that Legion M's 9th round of fundraising is OFFICIALLY OPEN. It's been just over 1 year since round 8 opened, so we figured it was worth taking a moment to talk about what’s changed since then.


MAJOR HIGHLIGHTS (AND 1 MAJOR LOWLIGHT) OF EVERYTHING THAT’S HAPPENED SINCE ROUND 8:


WILLIAM SHATNER

William Shatner joined our advisory board, posting an op-ed for Slashfilm which is worth a read if you haven’t already. After working with Bill for nearly a year, we can tell you that he's been an amazing addition to the company. At 91 years old, he's sharp as a tack and works as hard (or harder) than anyone in the business. He also understands the power of fans better than just about anyone, writing:

“People point out all the time that fans are responsible for my career. The fact is, fans are responsible for my entire industry. Take the fans away and the collective value of every company from Netflix to Walt Disney Studios drops to zero. That's why the idea of a fan-owned company is so powerful, and why I decided to become a Legion M shareholder and advisory board member, joining their quest to unite one million people as shareholders of the company.” Read More


SIMON PEGG & NANDOR FODOR
We made a production investment and joined as executive producers for Nandor Fodor and the Talking Mongoose, an upcoming feature film starring Simon Pegg, Minnie Driver, Christopher Lloyd, Ruth Connell, Tim Downie, Paul Kaye, and Gary Beadle. We supported the UK shoot, and were even able to secure a number of set visits and walk-on roles for Legion M investors. We brought Minnie Driver and Ruth Connell out to San Diego Comic Con (along with director Adam Sigal) for an epic Ballroom 20 (which seats up to 4,800 people!) panel. The film is in the final editing stages as we speak, with an expected premiere sometime in 2023.


THE MAN IN THE WHITE VAN
We wrapped principal photography on The Man In The White Van, an elevated true-crime thriller starring Sean Astin, Ali Larter, Madison Wolfe, Brec Bassinger and Skai Jackson. Based on true events, The Man In The White Van is a cautionary tale about the origin story of one of our greatest fears.  This film, produced by Legion M and Garrison Film, featured a number of Legion M investors working on the set (due to Covid protocols we weren’t allowed to bring investors in for set visits) and is expected to premiere in 2023.


KIT HARINGTON & MARY’S MONSTER

We made a development investment and joined as executive producers for Mary’s Monster, a development-stage film with Clara Rugaard and Kit Harington attached, along with BAFTA-award-winning (best drama series) director Farren Blackburn (if you aren't familiar with the BAFTAs, they are the UK equivalent of the Oscars/Emmys). Mary’s Monster is a wonderfully unique take on the story of Mary Shelley, who as an 18 year old woman wrote “Frankenstein,” a work that many consider to be the grandfather of all science fiction novels. While this project has not yet secured funding, if successful it could become one of Legion M's largest projects to date. 


THIS IS NOT FINANCIAL ADVICE

We made a production investment and joined as executive producers for This is Not Financial Advice, a documentary from the amazing team at Optimist about the new frontiers of retail investing, including the rise and fall of the "Dogecoin Millionaire." This is a wonderful documentary in that it's not just entertaining, but also enlightening for anyone trying to navigate investing in 2022. We're planning to partner with the Optimist team and some of the financial influencers featured in the film to host a series of panels designed to shed light on the opportunities and pitfalls of the broad array of "asset classes" that have expanded beyond stocks and bonds to include everything from equity crowdfunding and fractional ownership to crypto, NFTs, and the Metaverse.


WILLIAM SHATNER DOCUMENTARY

We partnered with the award-winning filmmakers at Exhibit A (the people who made Memory: The Origin of Alien) to make a documentary about William Shatner. We also announced that this project will be entirely financed by fans who will have the opportunity to invest directly in the movie with a return tied exclusively to the revenue generated by the film. We haven't announced final terms yet, but if you are interested, you can sign up to make a reservation today. Since Legion M is producing the film, all of our investors already have a stake in the project, but we're excited to open up the opportunity for fans to invest directly in a Legion M project with the potential to earn a near-term ROI based on the success of the film (as opposed to Legion M, which provides a long-term ROI based on the success of the company). If this project proves successful, it's possible we'll do more of these types of investments in the future.


MARVIN JONES III & CAPTAIN SMALLS

We announced that Marvin Jones III  (Black Lightning, Spiderman: Into The Spiderverse) joined the producing team for Legion M’s in-development feature Defiant, which tells the amazing true story of Captain Robert Smalls. Marvin joins Legion M, the Wolper Organization (Roots), and legendary actor, director, producer, and Legion M advisor Bill Duke (Mandy, Predator, Black Lightning). Stay tuned for more exciting updates on this project coming soon!


DEVELOPMENT UPDATES

We made a number of other announcements about development projects, including:

  • We announced that screenwriter Ashley Miller (Thor, X-Men: First Class, DOTA: Dragon’s Blood) has attached to write a screenplay for our development project The Gray Area, which was created by Glen Brunswick and comic book legend John Romita Jr. (The Amazing Spider-Man, Iron Man, Kick-Ass).

  • We announced a partnership with New York Times Bestselling author and journalist Jeff Yang to add Tales of the Moonlight Cutter to our slate of development projects.

  • We announced that Legion M was partnering with writer/director (and Iraq combat veteran) Kyle Hausmann-Stokes to produce My Dead Friend Zoe, a feature film based on his award-winning short film. 

  • We announced The Legion of Comedy, a development project to create a next generation comedy TV series and platform designed to harness the insights and creativity of the crowd..


STOCK SPLIT

We implemented a 10-for-1 stock split (which was approved overwhelmingly by shareholders earlier this year), transitioning every one share owned by Legion M shareholders into ten shares. For more information, please read this blog post.


LEVELING UP

We continue to evangelize Legion M with high-impact speaking opportunities, including CEO Paul Scanlan’s TEDx talk in London, and Legion M's Jeff Annison and David Baxter hosting our first ever Hall H panel (seating capacity 6,500!) at San Diego Comic Con with Kevin Smith and William Shatner.


SETBACK FOR OUR STREAMING SERIES 

While most of our news over the past year has been positive, we did have a setback on our streaming series, when we were informed that the streamer who bought it had cut it from their slate. We're currently in the process of trying to negotiate a "turnaround agreement" that will allow us to take the project to other potential buyers.


REVENUE MILESTONE

We made over a million dollars in revenue for the first time in company history in 2021. As an early-stage company, we're not focused on revenue, and frequently trade short-term revenue for opportunities we believe will deliver long-term strategic value -- for more information, we encourage you to read the analysis in our offering document. That being said, we're proud to have broken the million-dollar barrier, and have demonstrated an ability to earn revenue from a diverse array of revenue streams – even at this early stage. 


RECORD-BREAKING ROUND

We sold a Legion M record of $3MM worth of shares in just over 3 months during Round 8. We then went back to the SEC, increased our round cap to $3.85MM, and maxed it out yet again. When the dust settled, Round 8 ended as our most successful round ever. With over 35,000 shareholders, Legion M is one of the most successful equity crowdfunded companies in JOBS Act History.


ONWARD AND UPWARD!

As we open Round 9, we look forward to the next stage of Legion M's growth and development. Whether you decide to invest or not, THANK YOU for being part of our community, and joining us on this journey. While there's no telling where it will end, it's going to be a hell of a ride!

HOW INVESTING WORKS

Cancel anytime before 48 hours before a rolling close or the offering end date.

WHY STARTENGINE?

REWARDSWe want you to succeed and get the most out of your money by offering rewards and memberships!
SECUREYour info is your info. We take pride in keeping it that way!
DIVERSE INVESTMENTSInvest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
