One small cap company that is looking to go public on NASDAQ is Blackboxstocks Inc (OTC US:BLBX). After launching BlackBoxStocks in 2014 and building it on “shoestrings,” the startup is bucking the VC route, uplisting from the OTC Pink market in an effort to give everyone a “shot at getting a piece of the action in an early stage,” Kepler said.

BlackBoxStocks has traded under the same OTC symbol since 2015. At close on Oct. 14, the company’s stocks were trading at $7.05 per share. While Yahoo! Finance currently lists BlackBoxStocks’ market cap on the OTC markets at more than $68.5 million, Kepler said he estimates it at around $100 million, a discrepancy he attributes to the deal structure of early-stage VC and private equity investors.
“We felt there was a better way to capitalize a company. We’d raise our own money initially,” Kepler said, “We didn’t want to do any highly dilutive issuances in the interim before we can get to a larger exchange, so we toughed it out.” A complete research report can be found at HERE.
